Deliberately?

There will come a day that our children will see city lights on the moon.

"May our next 4th of July be on the moon", GaryPDX? Sorry, no blasphemy intended, Jewish folks, just something that came to mind.

Also, this is a totally awesome and necessary use of tax dollars.

futant: We're gonna blow up the moon!!!

That skit has my favorite Sarah Silverman line of the series.


"We're spending all this money, millions of dollars, to blow up the moon, when there are so many things here on Earth to blow up ... Mount Everest, the North Pole, et cetera. We're earthlings, let's blow up Earth things!"

I for one welcome Thundarr the Barbarian as our new savior.

Probably a space station, but not a city. I'd say that's still generations away, but maybe not many.

NASA could save a lot of money by doing a scaled-down mission here on Earth. Ingredients: 1 model rocket, 1 brick of cheese.

I love the country musician that Bob plays during that skit too :)

Good. I've always hated the moon.

Can't we just carve out "CHA" on the moon instead?
 
2006-04-10 07:26:11 PM
even with the explosion visible from earth, there will still be many among you who claim that it was all a hoax.

I actually applied for the Chief Moon Detonator position at NASA, but they rejected my idea:

I mean, come on. Sure, a rocket could make a nice explosion, but my version has the Hulkster shredding until the moon explodes from the sheer awesomeness.

Stupid NASA.

You think maybe somebody noticed the crescent moon on top of all those mosques?

Nah, it won't happen because of the amount of city lights we have here on Earth. Just too much light pollution.

fly me to the moon
and let me crash and burn and die
let my dying statement
be a dust plume 10 miles high

in other words
hold my hand
in other words
baby kiss me....

The mission is called "LCrOSS" and there haven't been any Duke jokes yet? You Farkers are slacking.

The "LCrOSS" mission will rape the moon.


/there

I'm loving the jokes being made just like the rest of you and I know this is FARK but doesn't anyone else find this kind of disturbing. I mean slamming a few rockets into the moon which controls our tides and several other things can't be a good idea.
 
2006-04-10 09:42:01 PM
I think thats farkin' cool. i'll have my telescope ready.

Haven't you heard the latest? That NASA rocket was *already* assploded BEFORE it rammed into that giant moon crater.

/there ya go...
 
2006-04-10 09:43:31 PM
"in preparation for future missions to mars"

begging your pardon, but we've already plowed spacecraft into mars at high speed....

So we've declaired war on the moon now, eh? Is it gonna be considered a "pre-emptive strike"?

/please ignore the troll
//just jokes, folks
 
2006-04-10 09:47:39 PM
NASA has really given up, haven't they?

"Yeah, we figured it would just slam into the moon anyway so, what the hell, tell everyone we planned it that way."
 
2006-04-10 09:47:48 PM
It's not foil hat time, but has anyone noticed how interested we suddenly are in blowing stuff in space?

I recall a late night Fark thread last year, where we followed the progress of a NASA space craft as it hit an asteroid, (or some such thing) 80million? miles in space, with a chaser space craft photographing it.

Does anyone remember the thread/actual event?
Nasa had a live feed, and we were all making the usual comments, sort of like the time a few years ago when they tried using helicopters with nets to catch a falling info satellite, but missed? That was actually fairly funny.

Did the folks at Jet Propulsion watch Armageddon one too many times?
 
2006-04-10 09:48:06 PM
Maybe NASA could outsource the mission to Iran since they will need some missile training exercises soon.
