Benefits: Lunar Mining - Moon Mining
Based on meteorite studies, and some lunar studies, the valuable and strategic mineral resources, in heavily cratered areas of the Moon, could be very extensive. Even in places previously explored, there should be richer mineral resources hidden beneath craters. There will be a market for lunar mining, which will grow as space transportation costs reduce over time.
Mining the Moon's surface for helium 3 would benefit future fusion power development, at a reasonable cost to the future industry, even with high space transportation costs included.
