Bombing the moon worries me
"NASA is launching a dramatic mission to bomb the moon. The LCROSS (Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite) mission will send a missile traveling at twice the speed of a bullet to blast a hole in the lunar surface near the moon's South pole. Scientists expect the impact of the Centaur rocket to be powerful enough to eject a huge plume of debris from the moon."
Apparently, scientists are attempting to do research on water in space. Am I the only one who thinks going all independence day on the moon is a bad idea? We've messed up earth enough, why do we need to play hard ball with the moon. These kind of things always read technology fueled apocalypse to me.
