We’re Gonna Make the Moon Go Boomer!

When the lunar eclipse occurred recently a lot of bloggers were rather excited about it. My comment was, seen one, seen them all. I added that if they shot a missle at the moon and made an explosion THAT would be fun.

My bloggin’ to NASA’s noggin.

Lookie! NASA is going to launch TWO missles at the moon and explode them.

The Earth-on-moon violence may raise eyebrows, but NASA’s history shows that such missions can yield extremely useful scientific observations.”I think that people are apprehensive about it because it seems violent or crude, but it’s very economical,” said Tony Colaprete, the principal investigator for the mission at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.

Now you know that real men are still in charge at NASA. If we can’t land people on the moon, then let’s shoot rockets at it to explode.

And, AND, they are gonna have a craft orbit the moon to send back video for YouTube.

This is gonna be fun.

  1. Hi Again…
    Just to let you know you’ve been added to the Bloggers Over 50 Blog Roll!!!
    [you may have to refresh the page because of cookies on your browser, but you’re now there with us all. Hope you can find some lasting friendships with other bloggers our age!!!]


  2. Yeah, but then we wouldn’t be able to surf.

    And what about my periods? I have my period on the full moon. Does that mean my periods would stop? I am all over that.

  3. I ovulate on the full moon and menstruate on the new. So yeah, another vote here for not fucking with the moon.

    I was an avid followed of the Apollo shots, back in the day. Would these explosions fuck up all the bases and the American flag and the footprints and the empty Tang jars and Space Food Sticks wrappers and whatnot? Because that would just be wrong.

  4. @The Absurdist: I don’t want to blow UP the moon, just blast holes in it. Make some new craters and shit.
    @Gretchen AND The Absurdist: Thanks for sharing your cycles with me.
    @Gretchen: I loved all the Apollo stuff, glued to TV. Love the Space Shovel too. I just ran across my Owners Manual for the Space Shuttle (a gift from my kids) the other day.
    Do you think they did a poop chute dump before they blasted off to come home? Moon-turds! If I had a punk band, that’s what I would call them.

  5. God, I hadn’t contemplated the poop issue (which is SO not like me). Remember that part in Apollo 13 when they had the one guy pee in his space suit?

    I’m glad you enjoyed hearing about our cycles! Women love creeping guys out with that stuff. It’s our little revenge for having to bear your (not “your” personally) children.

  6. @Gretchen: I loved Apollo 13. But I don’t remember that part.
    Did you read Friday Five and follow the link for the girl and her eleventy billion periods?
    BTW: no comment on the quotes in the upper right hand corner???
