With humanity's intention of heading back to the moon and stay this time, this short documentary looks at the real-estate business that have popped up as new possibilities open up on Earth's satellite.
After 40 years, man is preparing to return to the Moon. But this time the astronauts won’t just land on the Moon – they plan to stay.
From his office in Nevada, Dennis Hope has spawned a multi-million dollar business selling lunar real estate. But scientists believe the real prize is trapped in the Moon’s rocks.
It contains large deposits of an extremely rare gas called Helium-3. Could Helium-3 be mined and used as a new source of almost inexhaustible, clean and pollution-free energy on Earth?
Whoever succeeds in transporting Helium-3 back to Earth could solve the world’s energy crisis. Who will win what has been dubbed the second Moon race? And should we be exploiting the Moon’s valuable resources at all?
