Newspapers Articles 1995-Present

This set of articles is a sampling of news writings between 1995 and the present about the promise of a He-3-D nuclear fusion energy cycle.  Some of these articles reflect the hope that lunar He-3 will be Earth’s “climax energy”–the last energy source it will ever need, because it is both plentiful and entails insignificant radioactive waste.  Some of these pieces attest to the problem posed for lunar energy exploitation by the fact that there exists no stable lunar property rights regime, and no larger international agreement about how such a regime might be fashioned.  Such stories suggest that an eventual Moon rush could resemble past examples of lawless scrambles for the riches of new frontiers.
