Gas-scavenging methods

  • Identification of areas of Lunar Regolith enriched in specific elements or isotopes (e.g. Helium3)
  • Coldtrap ice deposits mapping
  • University led expeditions to areas of interest
  • Maintenance of priority short-lists of potential outpost and settlement sites to tap various resources or various topographical advantages
  • High power source to heat regolith to high temperature
  • Fractional distillation to separate gasses with different boiling points
  • Superleak method to separate isotopes
