Dr. P.K. Iyengar, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission told a seminar, that there were possibilities of extracting nuclear fuel from the surface of moon. The US and USSR are seriously considering mining the moon's surface for Helium-3, an isotope of helium not found on earth. Helium 3 does not leave radioactive waste behind when used as nuclear fuel. It becomes ordinary helium, giving off energy in the process. The moon's surface has millions of tons of Helium-3 and both superpowers had plans to stockpile it.
