Sec. 2. The Moon Agreement. The United States is not a party to the Moon Agreement. Further, the United States does not consider the Moon Agreement to be an effective or necessary instrument to guide nation states regarding the promotion of commercial participation in the long-term exploration, scientific discovery, and use of the Moon, Mars, or other celestial bodies. Accordingly, the Secretary of State shall object to any attempt by any other state or international organization to treat the Moon Agreement as reflecting or otherwise expressing customary international law.

We don't need Space Marines.

If you think about it, the Moon agreement benefited everyone except the USA because nobody else had the resources to actually develop the Moon.

It's racist to call them shitholes, even though by acknowledging it's racist, it means you're admitting that it just so happens to be that even the shittiest shithole majority-white nation is still leagues ahead of even the most mid-level non-white nation.

Pretty much every international agreement is like that. Then on top of that, they try making fun of the US and shaming it in the process.

President_Sanders 1 point ago

You don't believe in aliens? I mean, at all?

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Genesis 6:4

I thought all Bible-reading Christians believed that, in the least, there were extraterrestrials in the old days coming down to earth and boppin' our women.

Of course, maybe you aren't a Bible-reading Christian. But I don't think simply believing that aliens exist(ed) makes you a member of a fringe religion. It's pretty mainstream (although not discussed a lot).

Look at the mass ratios, the He-3 on the moon is too low to be worth it (alone) even though it’s far higher than Earth. The only viable fusion fuel we have on Earth (in terms of amounts) is Boron-11 + Hydrogen. While it’s aneutrionic that reaction is also 500 times harder than the easiest fusion, Deuterium + Tritium.

 

We literally have to make it to Jupiter or Saturn, I forget which giants are good for He-3, if we want practical fusion.

Space mining is one of the most hilariously impractical things I've ever heard of.

How many decades and untold hundreds of billions into infrastructure and r&d to figure out how to land loads of tons of materials from orbit... just to tank the price of whatever precious resources you're mining by flooding the market with it.

It's liberal scifi fantasy bullshit.

squanchingonpao 11 points ago

poop -7 points ago

It's getting it back to ONTO earth that's the problem, dumb dumb. They have enough trouble landing rockets safely. Now imagine doing it with hundreds or thousands of tons of material. How much fuel is that going to take, genius?

Or do you propose we just hurl 100 ton slabs of metal at our planet from space and hope for the best?

And you're still ignoring the problem of flooding the market. Gold is only valuable due to scarcity, not its usefulness. We don't need more gold.

8
Taylor814ce 8 points ago

So you're missing one of the main reason for extraterrestrial mineral exploration.

Trump's order specifically says "water and certain minerals."

This isn't necessarily to bring water and minerals back to earth, but to allow our people to use what they find.

It's science fiction now, but water becomes more valuable than gold in a colonized solar system. You're right, it makes no sense to bring water back to a planet that is 71% covered with water. But it also doesn't make sense to pay to launch water into space if it can be found on Mars or in asteroids/comets as ice.

This order is setting the stage to allow colonies to become partially self-sustaining by using what they find.

6
squanchingonpao 6 points ago

it with hundreds or thousands of tons of material

Bruh there are only 171,000 tons of Gold in the entire world LOL

We need Gold and other rare elements for electronics. And China has a lot of it. We need to be independent.

6
uzi5v2 6 points ago

A small amount of gold is used in computer chips and other electronics because it’s a better material for those applications despite being much more expensive than copper. Now imagine all the other product innovations if gold were to come down in price. Not saying their wouldn’t be negative consequences as well but still. Plus that’s ignoring the fact that it doesn’t have to be gold we mine for.

4
Taylor814ce 4 points ago

There's also the flip side. In a colonized solar system, where colonies need to produce their own electrical components, the cost of gold will go way up if we need to have inter-system delivery.

Just think about it. If there is a colony on Mars that needs gold to create the electronics for their life support system, the gold becomes a helluva lot more valuable. And if a rocket of gold and other minerals was to explode in atmosphere (which will inevitably happen) then the cost will go up as well.

To me, this seems more geared towards using what we find, where we find it, as opposed to bringing it back to earth.

None of which are worth going to space for. lmao. You know why we don't mine "rare earth metals" in the US despite there being plenty of them? IT'S DOESN'T MAKE ECONOMIC SENSE.

So you think people are going to go all the way to fucking SPACE, for valuable shit they won't even bother processing here on earth?

I swear man, nothing gets the liberals in hidding to reveal themselves more quickly than calling out how braindead the idea of space mining is.

I mean seriously, the only place you see people discussing space mining seriously is on that god-awful socialist "Futurology" sub on reddit, where they think space metals are somehow their ticket to UBI. That should tell you all you need to know.

6
Taylor814ce 6 points ago

You're missing the whole point.

Yes, it is not worth it to mine a small quantity of minerals in space to bring it back to earth.

But it also isn't worth it to launch a small quantity of minerals into space to build or repair systems in those system colonies.

That's the point of this. We don't search for iron, gold, or water to bring it back to the US, but so we don't need to pay to launch those necessary resources into space.

It takes 9 months to reach Mars. If a colony there loses water, they won't survive for 9 months. They will need to find water on the planet, which is what this executive order would allow.

Woohoo, moon agreement void. L5 Lives
.
For those not in the know, the L5 society was a society from the 70s and 80s devoted to space colonizing, particularly putting a permanent colony in the Lagrange L5 point between the earth and moon. A lot of forward thinking people in that society.
.
They became particularly well known for fighting the moon treaty from the UN, which would have prevented mass drivers launching material from the moon, colonizing the moon, free enterprise, and American life as we know it in space. .

“After braving the vast unknown and discovering the new world, our forefathers did not only merely sail home — and, in some cases, never to return. They stayed, they explored, they built, they guided, and through that pioneering spirit, they imagined all of the possibilities that few dared to dream.” — President Donald J. Trump

We don't even know if it's scientifically possible for other nations to visit the moon. It's never happened before.

I have this app that tracks the ISS. There were a couple Americans and someone else, maybe a Japanese guy.

And I thought it would be weird shit to be on the space station wondering what the fuck all is going on down here right now.

The Moon and Mars will form a new constellation known as "The God Emperor's Ballsack," from which we shall spray freedom, liberty and economic enlightenment across the face of the galaxy.

"We choose to go to the Moon! We choose to go to the Moon...We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too" - John F. Kennedy, Sept 12, 1962

"Space Force, Bitches, we're going back to the moon! Screw your Moon Agreement, try to stop us!" - Donald J. Trump, 2020
