Helium-3 exists as a natural resource on the dark side of the moon that Lunar Corp uses to power fusion energy (the actual science in this fictional HE-3 is an element currently being researched for its energy-producing potentiality).
Plot: The moon is the source of most of the Earth's energy through the potentially factual supply of Helium-3 (HE-3) - a light, non-radioactive isotope of Helium which could help to turn nuclear fission (as opposed to the current fusion) into reality.
Shooting on the original Alien soundstage in just 33 days, most of the Earth's energy is being provided through the moon's potentially factual supply of Helium-3 (HE-3), a light, non-radioactive isotope of Helium which could help to turn nuclear fission (as opposed to the current fusion) a reality.
