Going to the Moon for a Fill Up

Wondering what all this going back to the moon crap might really be about? Well, interesting piece over at Wired posits that the new Moon base may be more about solving the nation’s long term energy problems than any space-based science initiatives.

It appears a substance called Helium 3 can be used in cleaner fusion reactors. Now, H3 is pretty rare here on terra firma but take a wild guess where there’s boats shuttle loads of it?
