The Place to Launch an Interstellar Civilization

It’s at 11:10 that I realized that the moon would be a great starting point to launch an interstellar civilization.

Low gravity and no atmosphere means easier mining, and easier off-world transport (and tons of near-free solar energy for half the lunar month). And what’s available for mining?

  • Oxygen
  • Silicon
  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Aluminum
  • Magnesium

Even ignoring the Helium-3 (which, incidentally, could be quite useful in powering small vessels like starships), that rock looks purpose-built to launch an interstellar expansion.

Something worth chewing on, for any creationist.

Especially those interested in getting into the big leagues: God sets the template in creating the world, and we follow as His interstellar gardeners.

With His permission — the Cosmos is Christ’s property, after all, since He made it! — it’s not a bad way to spend a fruitful, creative, and joyful eternity, hmmm?
