Is it just me or was the recent news story about finding water on the moon just horrifying?
I mean, in one report they announced that they’d found water locked up in the rocks and that this meant that they could build factories to extract the water to create rocket fuel to send us to other planets and support life.
Forgive me, but haven’t we already seen the effect of setting up factories to exploit non-renewable resources? Are we simply changing our plans so that instead of conserving resources we just use them up then move on to another planet?
Frankly the last thing any planet, moon or other rock in space needs is a species like us turning up on its doorstep!
