DailyDirt: Everyone Knows The Moon Is Made Of Cheese...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Astronauts haven't been back to the moon in a long time. It's not quite as simple as building a rocket in the backyard with your trusty dog. The technology to get people back to the moon could be re-created, but the benefits of doing it again don't seem to justify the costs. Maybe someday folks will go back, but until then, here are a few moon-related links for your amusement. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    It is if you need new cheese supplies just that badly.

    Why is NASA so obsessed with retaining its moon rocks? It seems odd to me.

    Re:

    Maybe NASA has legal liability if someone eats it and dies or something?

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Are people STILL going on about that moon-landing hoax? All these "rocks" and "dust" are fake movie props, people!

    Re: Re:

    NASA holds that every single half-gram of moon material brought back is/was/always will be their exclusive property.

    Moderate amounts have been "gifted" to various cities, heads of state and other figures, but apparantly only as some kind of open-ended loan.

    Even if you were never told about this "arrangment", or received the moon material inside some bit of astronaut equipment collectible that you Did legally buy, they will seize the moon material as soon as it hits any kind of auction or private sale market.

    Re:

    Just a guess, but magma flows maybe?

    The moon wasn't always completely solid.
