Titanium Moon   37 comments


Precious treasure on Earth’s Moon!

The perfect place to purchase that outrageously expensive gift of precious jewellery to win over the treasured love of your life gentlemen!

Guaranteed Result!!

(Wolfie knows these things…!! 😉 )



Thanks to the US Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and one of its onboard cameras a brand new Moon map has been successfully fashioned.

The results show that the Moon has there is a vast quantity of titanium ore which has proved to be as much as 10 times richer than that found on our home planet. It reached this conclusion by analysing the titanium ore on the Moon’s surface in seven different light wavelengths during an extensive scan.

Exciting news! This could be the forerunner of a future mining colony on the Moon!


Moon Shades of Titanium

“Looking up at the Moon , it’s surface appears painted with shades of grey, at least to the human eye. But with the right instruments the Moon can appear colourful.” ~ Mark Robinson of Arizona State University.



The maria (lunar plains) can appear reddish in some places and blue in others. Although subtle, these colour variations can tell us important things about the chemistry and evolution of the lunar surface. They indicate the titanium and iron abundance, as well as the maturity of a lunar soil.”

~ Mark Robinson of Arizona State University

Consequential Worth of Titanium

Titanium is a highly significant and intensely hunted metal because:

• It has extraordinarily weightless qualities

• It is at least as strong as steel if not more so.

Consequently Titanium can safely said to be a VERY pricey metal!


Titanium in the Lunar Maria

Titanium discovered on the Moon in the ilmenite compound is, on our home-world only traceable in around a microscopic one percent of comparable ores. The lunar highlands contain approximately the same minuscule amount as Earth.

The lunar maria however, based on this latest Moon map, show evidence of one percent – 10 percent of Titanium – an immense amount by comparison to Earth’s supplies.


"Lunar titanium is mostly found in the mineral ilmenite, a compound containing iron, titanium and oxygen," ~ Mark Robinson, and Brett Denevi of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, in Nantes, western France.

Future Lunar Colonies

In the future ilmenite could be broken down by Lunar Miners who would both live and work on the surface of the Moon to release the iron, titanium and oxygen contained in the ilmentite compound.

Also, particles contained in the solar wind, including helium and hydrogen particles can be very efficiently contained by titanium-rich minerals, according to Apollo data.

In terms of future lunar settlements and their human populations helium and hydrogen gases would be an essential and highly valued resource.


If you have got this far down the page and STILL not wooed the treasured love of your lives gentlemen you clearly DIDN’T “Shoot for the Moon” and only have yourselves to blame!

We ladies like to be spoilt….Wolfie knows all about that!

So! If you’re still hanging around reading this JUMP TO IT! Shoot for the Moon!

Off you go now…toddle off! We are waiting!!

  1. If the moon is warmer than here, book me a flight, NOW!

    • You won’t like it on the Moon Arlene! You will be out of breath! No air…no atmosphere! I could book you in for a holiday on Venus…roasting hot there and mcuh closer to that nice cuddly hot sun than Earth 😉 Trouble is it’s also poisoness and corrosive too…better try volcanic Io I think! Ruby and Tango will prefer the lupine company (Firewolves 😉 ) and you can practice your dog training skills on the Firewolves of Io whilst you’re there 🙂 Great place for painting live, active volcanoes too if you’re feeling creative!! 🙂

  2. Hi Wolfie,, arrgh well now, being as the Shutle has just been disbanded and no flights until they get the Alien flying saucers up off the ground it may proove a little hard to extract just yet.. but by then they will be so many holes in the Earth we shall look like the Moon anyway.. .. And Titanium will be the least of a our worries.. I just wonder though Wolfie, what is on the other side of the Moon?… Gold? or maybe it could be Diamonds,, All a Girls best friend… But I prefer our Four Legged any day.. As Mans Best Friend.. So you Will be Ok Wolfie my friend…..
    Great information Wolfie… and who knows… ??? what the future holds.. That Space Station isn’t Up there for Nothing..
    have a Great Weekend coming Wolfie xxx

    • Hey Dreamwalker! Dare to dream! We are learning new things all the time about our universe and the possibilites are endless! As you say the Space Station isn’t up there for nothing 🙂 The Shuttle may have been grounded but there are private companies out there and this is not the end of our galactic endeavours! No! It is only the beginning albeit in a slightly different direction…we continue to progress and make new breakthroughs all the time. Good to know Wolfie is safe with you throughout though 🙂 x

  3. i have been wondering why, in mans quest for space exploration, we have not done more with the moon since we actually landed there once.

  4. The Moon seems a wasted enterprise at the moment but with the population growing at a mad rate of knots here on Earth who knows what the future of Space adventuring will provide us with? Just don’t expect every man to be a perfect shot Icywolfy of the Icy Realm, I mean on the Moon, as Drilling for Moon Rocks can be a lot harder than it looks 🙂 lol Well something like that anyway 😉 lol Sooooooooooo Icywolfy when do we ALL blast off for the Moon then? 🙂 lol

    • Certainly we need to do something and if something as simple as self control on the breeding front isn’t going to be an option there has to be a case for branching out into our Solar System for better or for worse. It’s up to us to make it work and not make the same mistakes as we have on Earth. I was very much against mining the moon in the early days of this blog but ultimately my survival instinct is as strong as the next person’s and if the only way we can have a future is to spread our galactic wings and fly then fly we must…hopefully with some sense of responsibility to the worlds we aim to utilise. 🙂 Hmm…don’t think we’d better blast off to the Moon before F1’s finished! Probably not wise is it? Wouldn’t want you too distracted to take control of the Gothic Realm crew who will be wreaking havoc otherwise!! They might throw Icewolfie out of the airlock!!!! 😉

      • I don’t think that anyone will dare throw you out of the airlock Icywolfy but you can fetch me a cool drink to be on the safe side, I mean this Space travel is hot work 🙂 lol

        Androgoth XXx

      • Yes…lol 😉 I’m sure it is in your case Androgoth! 😉 I will run and fetch you that cool drink immediately…hot vampires are best appeased with immediate effect and definately without the slightest hint of delay 😉 lol 🙂

      • An excellent choice Icywolfy and don’t forget the ice cubes, actually I think that this heat shield is flawed, well either that or there are too many wicked thoughts being processed by the micro-stripping, I mean micro-chipping computer botts 🙂 lol

        Have a funtastic rest of evening now and don’t forget to check out the Caveman on my latest posting 🙂 lol

        Androgoth XXx

      • Ice cubes! >>>> 😉 “micro-stripping”…lol!! 🙂 Too many wicked thoughts by far for any, even the most advanced model of micro-stripping computer botts to process lol…see? You’ve gone and melted all those ice cubes with that dodgy heat shield 😉 Time for you to take an ice cold shower I think!! 😉 I will be back to check the caveman out tomorrow lol…the Gothic Realm is FAAAAAAR too hot to handle right now! Better get that heat shield fixed lol 😉

      • It’s fixed already, I had a team of skeletons working on it, even the Zombie with the big… nose had a go 🙂 Okay well keep in mind that the caveman is just a bloke in disguise, even if he does look a bit of a dummy 🙂 lol Have fun now Icywolfy of the Icy Realm 🙂

        Androgoth XXx

      • That was some caveman!! lol 😉 Say no more!!! 🙂

  5. Oh Dog! I hope this isn’t true. If it is, some greedy human will find a way to exploit the Moon’s riches and we won’t have it anymore *sigh*

    • I know what you mean Rumpy…I posted on this subject “Mining the Moon” in the dim and distant blogging past of Wolfie and I covered such dire subjects there…now if I could just remember where it is maybe I could post the link for it…Oh wolf! I will look later I see to have a huge back-flea of blogs to catch up with right now 🙂 …. HooooOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWwwwwwwwLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Hope you’re being good Rumpy!!

  6. “Shoot for the moon”!? – I hope nobody with a red button takes this too literally – a shower of titanium ore on our heads might not be too good. And, what would become of the tides?
    I have already secured the love of my life – and diamonds are the required currency in any case.
    Pats from Pat for you Wolfie.

    • HooOOOOOOWWWWWWWwwwwLLLLLooooo Pat! Great to see you again! Yes…I can think of preferable pastimes than having titanium ore showering down on my Wolfie head it has to be said 😉 Somewhere buried in the backwaters of this blog…lol…there is a post on ‘Mining the Moon’ giving a different perspective on the subject…I think (well I’m not sure where it is myself to check!) I mentioned the question of tides there…the question is…what did I actually say?! lol 😉 Of course diamonds are the required currency…lol…but it would be very nice to know the love of my wolfie life loved me enough to romatically run off to the Moon to gather titanium ore to create a wonderfully romantic treasure for Wolfie – the love of HIS life! lol 😉

  7. I think we better stay on earth Iv like the moon shining when i walk aside a beach line on a warm summer night.lol
    tc Wolfy and stay with ur feeth here oke??

    • That is a good point re the moon shining when walking along a beach line on a warm summer night…but not sure I could deal with being Earth-bound forever! I am an Icewolf from the icy little moon Europa, after all! It would be fun to explore another Moon 🙂

  8. Merhaba benim güzel arkadaşım Buz
    sizi gördüğüm için çok mutlu oldum
    değerli yorumların için çok teşekkür ederim
    size güzel bir hafta sonu ve güzel bir gece diliyorum
    çok kucak dolusu sevgiler gönderiyorum

  9. hi icey i think my mooning days are over well after the last adventure when i had to be stripped of my nice floaty black dress after moon watching wonder if the cheese is better up there but the thought of drilling and harvesting the moons resources doesnt appeal we have spoilt enough down here sorry havent been around for a while my hearts been beating in another place hmm be good icey xxjen

    • Really jen?!! And why did you have “to be stripped of” your “nice floaty black dress” exactly?!! I know what they say about the effects of the Moon but…lol 😉 And where, exactly has your heart been beating if not here I wonder?!! Hope all is well with you and your likely large of height by now, dark Goth dog! I have very mixed feelings re mining the moon but ultimately I would like to survive in the long term and I believe we all do even if it does mean utilising resources which we’d really rather not. But our Earthly supplies are not infinite and no matter how badly we have handled things so far, our survival instinct is very strong if we are to be realistic about it! 🙂

  10. i got a bit squiffy icey well ok a lot then while away with my daughter had a lovely black goth dress on the pub was full of old fishermen who wanted to see us dressed up got lots of pics taken lots of drinks bought so my daughter had to undress me all she does now when she sees me is shout GET ME A BUCK ET LOL i shouted those famous words before going unconscious scandelous i know but great fun xjen

    • Thought it might have to do with being a little bit squiffy jen! lol love a good dose of scandal lol especially when it involves a naughty goth!! Squiffy hoooooooooWWWWWWLLLLLLLLLLssss to you! x 😉 Icy 🙂

  11. Wünsche dir noch eine schöne Woche ich glaube ich fliege zum Mond dort ist es bestimmt Wärmer als hier hoffe das es bald besser wird auch bei euch lieber Gruss aus Köln Gislinde.

    • Ich denke, wir werden alle auf den Mond lieber Freund Gislinde fliegen!
      Wir erwarten regen und keine Sonne bis Mitte Mai hier
      Kein Wind oder regen auf dem Mond 🙂 ….. Aber keine Luft entweder!
      aber kein Problem! Wir werden nicht lange genug am Leben zu
      sorgen um kleine Details wie, dass!! 🙂
      Wölfe Umarmung

  12. Know you gals like diamonds; will it be titanium next? Perhaps.
    Never know what the future will bring Wolfie.
    Interesting, will keep it all in mind if ever it materializes.
    Why did the US abandon lunar exploration?
    Guess that’s the US for you…
    love always, Eddie

    • I rather like titanium…had a lovely pair of titanium ear rings at one point…don’t they use titanium in building airplanes? lol Thought I’d heard that said somewhere or maybe I’m dreaming 🙂 Didn’t the US abandon lunar exploration for financial reasons? Oh…maybe that was the whole space exploration programme!! 😉

  13. I greet and wish you all the best.

  14. I find the idea of humans on other planets more frightening than inspiring. They should learn to be kinder to this one first.

    On a lighter note, those beautiful pictures make me want to try howling like a wolf instead of barking. Ahoooooooooooooooo!

  15. it is a scary thought Clowie…quite terrifying in fact…but maybe it would be good for humans…on Earth there is a ready made world…elsewhere mankind will have to fight and battle the harsh alien environments, not yet prepared for human living. If it is not respected during the early stages it is likely to be humans who will die off quickly. To have to work at and develop your own world, I think, would make humans far more respectful of their environment than on Earth. Maybe.

    That was an awesomely rich and resounding howl btw! It reverberated through the bowels of the Earth and shook the mountains across the world with its depth and resonance! It was very exciting and you would make a great wolf! 🙂
