Trump Wants To Mine The Moon – signs order to encourage work

We have to be careful with nonrenewable resources like minerals because once we mine them all, that’s it, there isn’t anymore. Well except for what’s on the moon. And no one up there needs them so we might as well go get them too. Or at least that seems to be the idea behind President Trump’s executive order.

The President signed an order encouraging businesses to mine the moon for resources. Which is the basis for many, many science fiction novels and almost all of them end poorly but so far we haven’t found anything up there so fingers crossed.

Does America have authority over the Moon? No, not really. It’s everyone’s moon. And even if sometime in the future it is mined, the resources should belong to everyone. Still, what a random piece of news.
