ISRO or Indian Space Research Organisation is planning to mine energy from moon by 2030 to meet indias energy need. So far plan is to mine Helium-3 rich lunar dust and send back to earth. Project look ambitious but not impossible.
“By 2030, this process target will be met,” .
He was elaborating ISRO’s future plans while delivering the valedictory address at the three-day ORF-Kalpana Chawla Space Policy Dialogue, organised by Observer Research Foundation.
There are other countries also working on the same project and there are enough Helium-3 in moon which if obtained can solve entire world’s energy requirement.
India currently imports 80 % of its oil and around 17% in natural gas requirements which costs India somewhere between £120bn to £140bn and by 2030 it will be doubled as per research.
