Dear Aliens on the moon:

If you can't find a way to stop us from destroying you, then you are pathetic.



Seriously guys, I don't know if there are aliens on the moon, but if there is then I doubt NASA is gonna blow them up, lol. Besides if NASA tried I'm sure the aleins would put a stop to it very quickly.

Better safe than sorry when it comes to bombing a Moon

Well, you are right on that one. At least I admit when making mistakes. Never seen you admit your mistakes, and you make quite a few.



Impact Sizes: The Centaur impact will excavate greater than 350 metric tons of lunar material and create a crater 66 feet (20 m) in diameter to a depth of 13 feet (4 m). The Shepherding Spacecraft impact will excavate an estimated 150 metric tons and with a crater 46 feet (14 m) in diameter to a depth of 6 feet (2 m).

BTW, even NASA uses the term "bomb the Moon" which would imply the use of some explosives, and that's what I thought this was all about.
As seen in the articles I gave, the account from the OP can be found in other sources too, whether or not Colaprete made those comments.

Yeah and showing respect instead of name calling, and insulting people would have gotten your message accross much better.

Part of the reason we post threads is to discuss such threads, not to have some member insult other members and the OP because of any mistakes.

BTW, I did not say anything about "aliens"...if you do "due dilligence" you will find my statements were about the possibility of debris falling to Earth from the Moon from this impact.

Well, not sure it was NASA, but when Scientific American did it in their headline, it was a sad day for journalism, and a "win" for hyperbole.

BTW, even a water balloon dropped on someone could be called a "bomb"!!!

so what's your opinion smart guy? are you okay with nasa launching a nuke at the moon? does that sound ethical to you?


Nuke?? What are you talking about.

At this point, I can only assume you are a troll trying to elicit responses by posting misinformation.

Perhaps NASA used those words, but could you please provide the source (or a link) to something written by NASA where they said they were "bombing" the Moon. Personally, I have only seen NASA use the words "impact" and "crash", but I could be wrong about that.

Even if they did use that word, a review of the mission parameters would show that they are not using explosives, but are simply impacting the surface with the upper stage of the centaur rocket that carried LCROSS to the Moon.

To be completely accurate, Scientific American didn't write that article either -- it was written by Skymania.com. However, I do blame Scientific American for repeating that misleading article.

The article you cited did make the claim NASA could be bombing alien bases on the moon. As did others I addressed in my first post.

There are many articles from different sources which use that same sentence.

www.telegraph.co.uk...

www.dailytelegraph.com.au...

www.chron.com...

www.liveleak.com...

And of course, there is the scientific American article.

www.scientificamerican.com...

BTW that member who claimed that a water ballon could be called a bomb has got to be kidding.... Talk about "due diligence"....

I very clearly stated in my OP why I was posting that article, and what i really saw as concern, and nowhere did i say anything about alien bases being attacked.

BTW, there is a big difference between a "water ballon" and a 5,216 pound rocket being dropped on top of anything....

So what does one call "Moon People" anyway?

I want to be politically correct.

1. Moonicans

2. Moontians

3. Moonies

4. Moonarians

5. Moondude

6. Moonians

It would be horrible to kill and then go to war without knowing what to call them.

Sad

I hate the stupid laws that people in the 60s put on the floating rocks of the Universe.

Idiots.

Violate away. Those laws should not be there. The ethics of floating space debris and barren rocks.

The authors of all of those articles are guilty of using a very poor choice of words.

You even said yourself in an earlier post that the term "bomb the Moon" implies to some people that explosives are being used. However, no explosives are being used, therefore my contention that "bomb" is a poor way to describe what they are doing.

Granted, "bomb" doesn't always mean "explosives". However, as you said, it implies the use explosives in many peoples' minds.

I don't agree that there should be NO laws, however...

...the fact that this has been done before many times by many other countries without anyone ever seriously accusing them of breaking a law. So why would the U.S. be accused of breaking the law because of THIS particular Moon impact.

Precedent is a very important aspect of law, and the precedent here seems to be that the many previous moon impact missions have not been unlawful.

"due diligence"? **ahem**

Well --- enjoy this, then.

'Bombs Away'




(BTW, second vid will have conspiracy theorists come in and claim it's "fake". You can tell by the angle of the shadows, and the Sun in the camera lens). Obviously done on a sound stage.

You've really got to learn what a "figure of speech" is.
