 Both researchers and industry, with hopes of one day mining them to support a space economy.

 we wanted to establish a permanent human presence on the Moon

we would need to resupply astronauts living there. Resources such as water can only be recycled to an extent

At the same time, resources are extremely expensive to launch from Earth. As of 2018,

it cost about A$3,645 to launch one kilogram of material into low Earth orbit, and more to launch it 

Mining in space could also transform satellite managemen

the energy required to reach them from the Moon is less than that needed to reach them from Earth
