Dr. E.T.A. Hoffmann is one of the world’s foremost experts on the Moon, and he’s been telling us about his findings for nearly 50 years.
His book Moon Mining, published in 1956, is the first book to cover the subject in detail.
In a recent episode of the Science Channel’s Science In Your Hands, Hoffmann and his co-author, professor John H. Smith, discussed the research that’s gone into creating the Moon Mining book, what it was like working with a renowned scientist, and how to make one yourself.
Hoffmann, who’s also a professor of geology and geophysics at the University of Colorado, is a world renowned authority on the Earth’s crust and mantle.
He’s also an ardent advocate for scientific exploration.
In this episode, Hoffman, Smith, and co-director of the Moon Research Laboratory, Dr. Bruce W. Stroud, discuss the basics of how to start your own moon mining venture.
