I did some stuff for NASA about Shackleton Crater, they were pretty sure there was water there even three years ago, that's why the mission went there.

The rocks collected for the lunar landings 40 years ago had water in them, but they thought they had been contaminated here on Earth. Now they realize the water was indeed from Luna.

Sweet, now I know I have a chance of opening a galactic lemonade stand on the moon. ;D.


Now, how to get the fertilizer up there for lemon trees? Not to mention the habitats I'll need to set up for growing the trees. Then, I'll need a bikini carwash at which to sell the lemonade to moonwalking customers.

Now I present...maakies by Tony Millionare (my fav strip) as revisited by Paul Madonna.

There is lotsa stuff on the moon, including:

"13 Hasselblad cameras . . . left behind on the lunar surface during the Apollo program.":

For all I know, someday a shopping cart from your local grocery store might be found on the lunar landscape.

I think it's time America stopped being the nice guy and just claim the moon as ours. We stuck a flag in it, it's ours. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTduy7Qkvk8)

I think there are bags of astronaut pee on the moon.

if you watch the moon impact special program from sky at night on bbc iplayer they explain it really well.
they devote 30 mins to the impact and prelim results
the nasa clip from cnn is not very good really at explaining how they gathered the data.

Ok Iplayer from other countries can be a nightmare , 2 options vpn or pay for software ,there is a proxy redirect website that sets its all up ,just "BING IT"....just before people start saying " I can't get Iplayer "

Yes, that was a surprise for me when I was there. No Hulu to watch Battlestar on, so I drank more Guiness...

This information should all come in very handy in about 200 years or so.

The US isn't about to stop having and/or starting wars long enough to financially support an Alhambra plant on the moon.

Big deal, if I can't get a good cup of coffee out of the deal, it's useless info.

Could just be the morning talkin' though. :P
