Will “Space Race” Energy from “The Forgotten Stone” Transform the World and Make You Rich?

Checking into the "space energy" teaser pitch from Oilprice.com

This is definitely my favorite kind of teaser ad — the mysterious element, the hidden asset, the pioneering scientists, we get it all! Here’s the bit that got me interested:

“On December, 1996, researchers stumbled onto something truly remarkable.

“A discovery that could be straight out of an X-Files episode…

“A tiny, extraterrestrial stone…

“Buried in the middle of the Egyptian desert.

“A fragment broken off something much bigger…

“Evidence of a new fuel source so powerful that it could

“Satisfy humanity’s energy demand for the next 10,000 years.”

It’s like something from the back of a thriller novel, right? But wait, there’s more!

“This single rock contains a little-known element that could lead to the greatest technological shift of our lifetime — even more life-changing than the internet…

“And create a wave of new billionaires rivalled only by the oil boom.

“Valued at up to $5 billion per ton…


“Meeting the zero-emissions standard.

“This Could Disrupt the Trillion Dollar Energy Industry”

Holy cow, so what is it? How do we buy some? Omigosh, this’ll be HUGE!

Oh, wait… it’s not really about this “energy source” — it’s about the race to someday maybe possibly get to that energy source, and perhaps use it, in the distant future.


OK, I’ll explain… the pitch, which comes to us from Oilprice.com as they sell subscriptions to their Global Energy Alert ($99/yr) seems to be about an abundant energy resource…

“1 million metric tonnes laying well within our reach.

“That’s about 10 times more energy than we could get from mining every single fossil fuel source on Earth.”

… but it’s really about an abundant possible energy resource on the moon.

The “forgotten stone” is, basically, moon rocks — or, more specifically, helium-3 from the lunar surface that can (probably) be used in fusion reactors to produce relatively safe and clean energy. Helium-3 comes from the Sun, but is blocked by the earth’s atmosphere s
