Astronaut Harrison Schmitt advocates a private, investor-based approach to
returning humans to the Moon—to extract Helium 3 for energy production, to use
the Moon as a platform for science and manufacturing, and to establish permanent
human colonies there in a kind of stepping stone community on the way to deeper
space. With governments playing a supporting role—just as they have in the
development of modern commercial aeronautics and agricultural production—Schmitt
believes that a fundamentally private enterprise is the only type of
organization capable of sustaining such an effort and, eventually, even making
it pay off.
Harrison Schmitt is, as of this date, the 12th and last human to have stepped on
the Moon. As an astronaut, pilot, geologist, academic, businessman, and United
States Senator, he has had a distinguished career in science and technology
practice and policy. Schmitt was the first scientist to go into space
specifically to explore the Moon as the Lunar Module Pilot and field geologist
on the last Lunar Mission, Apollo 17. He is active in private and government
sponsored research into a return to the Moon, and in fusion technologies at the
University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he is Adjunct Professor of Engineering.
In his role as a Senator (R-NM, 1977-1983) he was chairman of the Commerce
Committee's Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Space.
