Professor of nuclear engineering Gerald Kulcinski, director of the Fusion Technology Institute at the University of Wisconsin believes that the moons surface could contain enough helium-3 to provide 1,000 years of clean power to the United States.

Helium-3 has been found to provide a clean source of power through nuclear fusion, combining in the process to form normal helium and hydrogen with no radioactive contamination.

When the Johnson Space Center was requested to test lunar samples, the presence of helium-3 was confirmed, and the estimation was made that the helium-3 present on the moons surface could power the US for 1,000 years.

"Mrs. Jones, I'm sorry to inform you, but we've run the tests, and it appears that you have XP. Now don't cry - it's bad, but it's not a death sentence. Modern science has advanced in recent years, and it's now possible to live a reasonably happy life with XP. And there's a survivor's group that you'll want to meet as well."

Good Idea giz, damn fine syntax, dood liek what about mars? They think theres mass shit there, think about colonizing a outpost like that, teraforming the planet, having 10,000's or 100,000's or even :X millions dare I say?*puts pinky to his mouth* of years, shit...we'd be owning past our galaxy in under 100 years easily, our children or our childrens children could be doing some mass scifi shit we dream of from watching movies/tv. Yet it all depends on nasa, and teraforming imo. Dood, wow the mooon is like a mini station the space station between it, and us. But....it's also moving farther away from earth every year by a nice movement rate:/ Nasa hates that I bet.
