|"Im 40 now, boy, I hope re-incarnation really happens, cause I was born too early for this to happen so late in life... We humans are so smart, too bad we are mortal. I'd be right there mining."

|"Sorry guys but no way is this going to happen by 2020's. Cold fusion is still a pipe dream and i don't see the russians building lunar landers, bases and miners by 2020...maybe late this century"

|"This would take a real technological leap forward, especially by the Russians, to be economically viable. I sure would like to see a realistic cost-benefit analysis. Who'd be able to do a credible job of it might be problematic, though. In the long run maybe a Clarke "space elevator" might possibly be more practical in a Lunar application than it would here. Few or no lunar satellites to run into the thing, unlike here. ???"
