Is the Moon a business opportunity? According to Dr. Barney Pell, “it’s one of the biggest business opportunities in history.”
According to Pell, an angel investor and computer scientist and Vice Chairman and Chief Technology Officer of Moon Express, Inc., platinum metals strewn across the lunar surface from asteroid impacts could be worth many billions more than the cost of retrieving them.
Pell expresses his views in this short interview by Forbes.com:
Moon Express was selected as a participant in NASA’s $30M Innovative Lunar Demonstration Data (ILDD) program and is a candidate for the Google Lunar X-Prize.
