    That claim has been around since Skylab. Haven't seen any manufacturing revolution in the intervening 45 or so years. I believe the same claims were made for setting up production (of something) on Luna.

    Perseverance Rover VS Curiosity Rover - What's New? What's Improved?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEO77UEFGT4

    When it comes to Mars rovers, NASA has behaved like a bunch of pikers held in thrall by the geologists (led by Steve Squyres). We never needed to be told, because we already knew, that Mars used to have loads of water and a thicker atmosphere. These simple facts can be adduced from the most cursory of observations - and already were.

    What we paid NASA to do was to go out and look for signs of life, both past and present. And they always played along, dangling that carrot as if that was what their missions were all about. But bollocks they were.

    They got off to a good start with the Viking missions. They took along a little laboratory capable of rudimentary analysis of organics, and tantalising results were immediately returned. But after that, the geologists moved in and everything turned to schist for decades.

    That's hugely disappointing.

    If we send geological experiments, we will learn more about the geology on Mars. If we send biological experiments we will continue to learn there is no life on Mars. Fact is we know there is a lot of geology to learn about, so the returns are guaranteed. We also know that biology at a planetary scale leaves geological evidence, so if you go after the geology, you get to cover both bases to some extent.

    Humanity needed 35 years of psychological acclimatization to avoid cognitive dissonance.

    Tiny, simple moon rovers will bring cubesat science to the lunar surface.

    Moon Mining Could Begin As Early As 2025.
