Nasa is bombing the moon in order to see what lies underneath the rock and dust surface. The United States space agency hopes to find water. This video shows a simulation of the bombing but you can also watch it happen live on NASA TV.
I totally disagree with this experiment because it means the U.S. is one again flouting international laws – it doesn’t own the moon, and it really has no right to bomb the crap out of it.
And what is it about the United States and bombing anyway? It seems like it’s the first choice if something or someone isn’t complying with its wishes. This goes for Iraq, Afghanistan, and now even the moon. Its crime? A refusal to reveal its secrets.
Some (clearly insane) people have suggested this is the first act of war against lunar dwelling aliens who live on the dark side of the moon. Hmm, no, that’s preposterous, almost as much as the idea of bombing the moon in the first place.
