Some months ago, Donald Trump announced that he wants to send humans again on Moon in the coming five years. He even passed funding to the organization of $1.6 billion. In the competition of America, countries like China and the European Space Agency and other private companies are all set to send humans on the moon. According to the new study, it is highly suggested to less down the use of exhaustible materials as it takes one-eighth of the resource to launch a single rocket into space.

The lunar gold rush may result in the execution of the plans to send humans on the moon to start earlier than we thought. One of the major reasons behind this can be called the “doubling time” which stands for how long it would take a quantity to get double as an economy can grow by double within 7.3 years, and when we talk about the space, it would take only three doubling times to reach 100% from one-eighth use of the resource. When it comes to the moon, it is confirmed that the resources are going to be used in an excessive manner like water which is a much-valued resource as it can be used for growing crops, or can be used to produce rocket fuel, and can be consumed directly by people.

Some areas of the moon have a lot of titanium which us way valuable and are not available in much quantity as everywhere. It is also believed that the moon has expectedly water existence on it as it has ice mixed in with the lunar soil. There will a lot of energy needed for the extraction of the resources and we can not use solar energy because of the less indulgence of sunlight on the surface of the moon but at some places over the moon, there is a high presence of sunlight which can be proved as the uninterrupted source of energy.
