Fusion Power and Space Exploration
Fusion technologies and space exploration together encompass and demand all of the most important scientific and technological revolutions immediately before mankind. The most logical next step is to embark on an international crash program to industrialize the Moon, with a leading emphasis on the helium-3 fusion fuel resources in the lunar surface. This sets the basis for the colonization of Mars, and further exploration.
As with the 1960's Apollo program, developing the new technologies, the manufacturing capabilities, and the intellectual skills within our population to achieve these goals will drive the economy forward in ways nothing else can.
In a series of international webcasts in 2009, Mr. LaRouche stressed that this perspective for a fifty year commitment to a Moon-Mars colonization program must become the leading edge of a reform of the global economic and financial system.
