NASA is considering possible business uses for the moon, including mining of hydrogen and oxygen for rocket fuel, using the locally available silicon to make solar panels, and building a space station. They are even considering the moon as a site for low-gravity golf, volleyball and racquetball. Now that's what I call extreme sports.

I read a great book on this subject called Moonrush. It summarizes how the author, Dennis Wingo, thinks that the Moon's resources may be one of the key ways to solve our world's growing energy crisis. It really gets your mind going with some well researched facts and is pretty easy to read.
