Moon first, Mars second

I was looking at an infographic last week about mining the moon for work. Didn’t give it much thought really.

“Cool, but imagine all the costs involved,” said Lola’s brain.

Just an educational fluff piece. A “drive-by” is what I call them.

Imagine my surprise when this lead came across my desk this morning. Turns out that mining the moon may be just the ticket for getting man to Mars.

MIT people are super-smart, and I kind of like that.

NASA people are smart too. Perhaps they’re already working on a solution.

Anyway. I wrote an article about it. Thought you might like it.

My nerd is showing.

Love, Lola
