Representative Questions

1.) Compare the energy required to extract 1 kg of 3He from lunar regolith at 700 oC to that required at 900 oC. Use the data presented in class for the evolution as a function of temperature and be clear about your assumptions on the thermal properties of lunar regolith

2.) Reproduce L. Haskin's calculation on the amount of food one could produce from the Solar Wind Volatiles in 1 m3 of lunar regolith.

3.) Discuss the engineering considerations that you would have to consider if you wanted to gather the maximum amount of nitrogen from lunar regolith.
