NASA-Funded Study Finds Lunar Resources Could Cut Space Exploration Cost By $10B A Year

A new study, released on Monday, found that human space exploration could be lower by $10 billion a year. The National Space Society, or NSS, and Space Frontier Foundation, or SFF, announced in a press release the details about the study funded by NASA, illustrating how possible resources from the moon could minimise the cost of human space exploration through setting up a permanent base camp on its surface. The study, titled NexGen Space, also proposed that mining for lunar resources will be possible through the collaboration of NASA and private organisations.
