Mining on the Moon
The moon has a lot of unknown things about it. Could there be a water source on it? Could it contain the precious Helium-3? Yes, it could contain Helium-3. Mining on the moon could be an interesting option for NASA and the other smaller companies. Companies could benefit from mining but it would cost a lot of money and could be disastrous if it does not work.

The Earth's moon is full of minerals. Helium-3 is included, and it is this element that powers rockets and satellites. If we could send a spacecraft to the moon for long enough to start mining, we might be able to create a satellite using the moon's Helium-3. This could be a large help. Giant satellites could be built to power a city. With some or all cities using satellites for most of their power, people would be using less oil and fossil fuels. These satellites would help stop global warming and save many animals. Mining on the moon could be worth the money and help save our Earth.
NASA has a plan to mine on the moon. This plan involves slamming two chunks of metal into a crater in the moon. These capsules would be launched into space to come hurtling into the moon’s crater. Scientists would then study what erupts from out of the crater.
Another idea, unrelated to mining, but still using the moon, is lunar-solar power. Astronauts or rovers would journey across the moon to attach solar panels to it. These panels would be directly in the sun's view half the time. Antennas would beam the power collected by these panels back to Earth where it would be used around the world.
