Mining the Moon on Discovery Channel
When Humankind returns to the Moon, this time the plan is to mine its surface for hidden resources. Elements like hydrogen and oxygen, trapped in the lunar soil, are the keys to a permanent colony and for future missions to Mars and beyond. The Discovery Channel will explore Mining the Moon TV-G on Jan 21, 10:00 pm and again Jan 22, 2:00 am with a 60-minute program, according to Charles F. Radley. See Video 1 and Video 2 for lunar astronauts 'Jack' Schmitt (Apollo 17) and Ed Mitchell (Apollo 14) commentary on Mining the Moon.
