I have mixed feelings about the value of the space program, and without a doubt, this is probably the most expensive water we've ever found. But, if we go to the moon, it could turn out to be among the most valuable as well.Fleck calculates the price of that water to be about $1 trillion/af.
Peter's thought on the "value" of that water got me to thinking. Maybe we can bring an acre foot back, sell it to the Chinese and thus rescue our economy.
Whaddya think? :)
Or perhaps some people need to remember what opportunity cost means?
Bottom Line Stop the space fantasies -- we have real problems to solve here.
