DON'T TREAD ON ME!
AKA, don't bomb my moon, dude. As I was preparing to watch the LCROSS impactor hit the moon, I thought to myself, "Is anyone crazy enough to protest this wonderful scientific event?"
Of course. How could I doubt it?
From the same folks who brought you pyramids on Mars and moon landing conspiracies, comes the fear that LCROSS will cause an interplanetary (ok, inter-body) war.
Wow. It makes my brain hurt. But at least I have one.
Check it out here.
And don't forget... WATCH THE SKIES!
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE, CIRCA 1969
Welcome to the Missions to the Moon book blog. This is a place to re-live the heady days of the Apollo and Soyuz lunar programs- perhaps the crowning achievements of the 20th Century. Many blog entries will include a new downloadable image or artifact from the space age- items rarely seen and not available in print. It's all in the spirit of my newest book, Missions to the Moon- to remember the great adventure of the Golden Age of space exploration, and ponder what wonders await us in space.
