LA Times Reports: NASA- Moon Mission 2009
public comments via CNET site
My heart just sank lower that it ever has when I got wind of the news that NASA is sending a robotic mission to the Moon for exploration and testing to hopeful find a landing spot for astronauts and a potential colony upon the Moon.
That is not so bad, what is bad is that they are going to blast a hole into the southern pole of the Moon and see what comes out of it.
Now this bring us many issues: past, present, and future.
Why scout out a landing spot, have we not landed there before?.....or have we? There has been heavy debate that the Lunar landing in the 60’s is a hoax.
Japan has made statements….’there is no US flag to be seen on the Moon’….makes one wonder.
How big of a blast is this going to be and what will it do to the orbit and axis alignment of the Moon? And if it does do something, how will that effect us here on earth.
Why colonize the Moon? What is there? Who gets to go and why?
WHY!?....I am so disappointed with this news.
I hope what ever comes from that blast hits the probe and knocks it way out into outer-space never to be seen again.
