Please don't start that with that B.S.
Now don't pout, the point was that material from the moon (like the wonderful helium three) would likely be brought to Earth (or perhaps a off-moon facility) for refining, what would be taken off the moon would be ore.

There is ZERO market potential for helium-3 in the world right now, and and it's questionable if there ever will be.
Which could be said of any material from space or another planetary body. Gasoline was originally a useless by-product, went unused for decades after discovery, until someone figure out a profitable use for it.
