Back when I was a kid blowing up the moon was only a dream, but this weekend I heard a story on the radio confirming that NASA was indeed planning to create an explosion on the moon to blow some of it up. Here’s an article talking a bit about their plans. It also says that there are people collecting signatures to actually blow up the whole thing. The story immediately reminded me of one of my favorite Mr. Show sketches, seen below. Regardless of what happens with this it is worth 10 minutes of thought and a laugh. I wonder if we’ll be able to see it.
