Exploiting the Moon and saving the Earth

Abstract:
The Moon’s biggest asset, Worden believes, is what it doesn’t have: an ecosystem. “The Moon is a place where we can do things that are perhaps too dangerous to do on Earth,” he said. This could include performing nanotechnology research there, thus avoiding concerns about ecophagy: out-of-control nanobots turning everything into “gray goo,” as some opponents of nanotech fear.

(Ed.'s note: Someone forgot to do their homework before making the statement above. Gray Goo is not an issue. See crnano.org/BD-Goo.htm The only "opponents of nanotech" that fear gray goo are those that remain uninformed.)
