Main Question or Discussion Point

There was once hype about mining this on the moon. Still a thing being considered?

Still a thing, yes. Also still a pipe dream since we can't even get d-t fusion to work yet.

Do you think fusion power research will be abandoned ever as people will just give up?

Not at all. We are spending billions on ITER after all.

However, ITER will be a big turning point. If it is successful, then fusion funding might see an upsurge. If not, well, people aren't necessarily going to give up, but I don't expect governments to be very supportive in their funding.
