The Cost of Moon Water Posted by jfleck on 14 November 2009, 10:21 am By my calculation, the cost of NASA’s recently discovered moon water is $1,029,690,515,640 per acre foot.
They have customers in Vegas (who want just a tiny subsidy…)
And that’s not even counting the delivery and treatment/purification costs…
We may laugh at the cost now, but some people are planning for the future. Last summer a couple of guys in Nebraska filed water rights applications for water recently discovered on Mars – http://aguaportucson.blogspot.com/2008/08/things-must-be-pretty-desperate-in.html – I bet that costs more per acre-foot than water on the Moon, what with the higher delivery costs and all.

The funniest thing about that is the batshit-crazy units you guys use. Anyone knows that volume is measured in furlong-parsec-knots per second.
