      We are sending a machine to the Moon that will drill into the surface and put some of the soil into tiny ovens. Then we heat the soil to different temperatures which releases a bunch of chemicals into the machine. Then we can measure how much there is and even add more chemicals that will react to create even more things.

      When we have proven that it is possible we will need to create giant machines that will do the same job but on a much bigger scale so we can use the resources to help humans survive on the Moon
