Does the Moon Have Military Value?

Comments Filter:
  • Why not use drones to start exploring the surface? And then a more detailed survey of surface bearing ores?
  • Heinlein wrote about this in "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress". One doesn't need nukes, when one has lots and LOTS of kinetic energy. Rocks will do a lot of damage, and once on their way, would be hard to intercept/neutralize. The original article mentions attacking military assets in low earth orbit, which Heinlein didn't discuss. That's not surprising, considering the newness of applications of space technology for communications and navigation when he wrote the book.
  • yeah, give the baby some guns, it will make it happy.

The difficult we do today; the impossible takes a little longer.
