Blue Origin Wants to Mine the Moon

This is some Bond-level Dr. Evil shit.

Eric Berger, in Ars Technica

Blue Origin will attempt to market the technology to NASA for use by its Artemis program to return humans to the Moon in a “sustainable” way. NASA and its international partners seek to differentiate Artemis from the Apollo program by more extended stays on the Moon and building infrastructure such as power systems.

I guess technically NASA will be doing the mining using Blue Origin’s technology, if all goes to Bezos’ plan. This still rings of some super evil spy movie plot where a meglomaniac thinks he can own the moon.
