Helium rich moon dust on the moon surface is a priority for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). ISRO Professor Sivathanu Pillai stated that by 2030, India’s entire energy needs can be met with the helium obtained from there.
“This goal will be achieved by 2030,” said Pillai, who stated that the lunar surface is rich in helium 3 and added that this is a priority for the organization. “Other countries have similar plans,” Pillai said. “There are enough helium in the Moon to meet the needs of the whole world.”
We need more energy at lower costs
Pillai stated that the helium to be collected from the Moon will be transmitted to the Earth after it is converted to energy on the Moon. ISRO is now looking for new ways to do this at low cost. Fortunately, the organization is quite successful in this area. ISRO, which launched 104 orbits in just 18 minutes in the past week, has done this with a budget of only 15 million US dollars.
Multi-purpose and reusable space vehicles are of great importance in order to carry raw material or energy from the Moon to the Earth.
Military satellites are also being sent
On the other hand, Indian Army Manager Lieutenant General P. M. Bali expressed that India is determined to use space for national security purposes by launching India’s first military satellite GSAT-7. Bali said that India has one of the largest networks of communication and remote sensing encompassing the entire Asia-Pacific region.
