Moon Mining Mission To Be Launched By Private Company For First Time Ever In 2020

One private company is aiming to be the first to mine for materials on the moon — and they want it to happen in just a few years. Privately owned Moon Express said it planned to have a landing craft on the moon in 2020 to harvest a scoop of lunar soil and bring it back to earth. The scoop of dirt and rocks will be somewhere between the size of a baseball and a basketball. And while some of it will be given to science for experimentation, the rest will be sold commercially.
