mix: Bomb The Moon

"In Heaven, Everything Is Fine"
As reported by the Scientific American, NASA will bomb the moon. Seriously. While 1108 people (and counting) would lead you to believe that the moon "sucks" and "needs to be blown up", NASA actually has a pretty decent reason for the bombing: to test and see if water vapor lies under the surface of the moon. If water vapor does exist, it would basically mean that we can set up a base station, aka human colony, on the moon. As one who has been clogging his piggy bank for 25 years in order to take a trip to the moon, I fully support NASA bombing the big circle in the sky. But still, gotta be nerve wrecking to be the guy who presses the button and causes mass destruction. This mix is for that dude– no pressure, none whatsoever.
