The Moon maybe on hold for now but the work goes on. I found this article and thought it was interesting.

Except; “One of the devices being tested concentrates heat from the sun to melt a small amount of soil, fusing it into a solid surface so it may be used as a launch pad. The same solar collector is also used to heat soil into lava and, with the addition of two other elements, start a chemical reaction to extract oxygen and hydrogen.
By the end of the week, researchers will have enough hydrogen and oxygen to ignite a small rocket thruster and see the effects on the launch pad they've created.”
