Paul Spudis

Paul Spudis is senior staff scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, and an expert on the Moon.  He advocates using robots to mine lunar water ice to establish fuel depots-- water yields hydrogen and oxygen, which makes an excellent rocket fuel when correctly recombined.

He also wants to use robots to support the establishment of a permanent human presence on the Moon.
