New thoughts on the Moon Bombing.

Even though the following appears to debunk every moon Conspiracy theory it will help me make a point!

Hostile military action on the moon? Was Friday's NASA mission just a cover story?
October 12, 2:24 AMCleveland Photography ExaminerDennis Bodzash

The photo-op was a dud. The mission did what it set out to do, at least according to the official line from NASA. Last Friday, NASA crashed its Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) into the moon in the hope of finding water below the lunar surface. However, according to some, the NASA mission was just a cover for a mission with sinister, hidden motives . So is all of this speculation true?
Certainly not. The rumors perpetuated all over the Internet range from the plausible, though unlikely, to the truly outlandish. Here are just a few of the rumors associated with LCROSS with evidence to the contrary.

The impact could trigger a war with extraterrestrials. First thing, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that the moon is inhabited. If the moon was populated by an alien race, why hasn't this group of aliens attacked already? The Apollo landings should have been considered an act of hostility. And for those who believe that we never went to the moon, LCROSS will be just the latest in a long list of probes that have crashed on the lunar surface.

But what about all the conspiracy theories about life on the moon? Nonsense. If there was a civilization on the moon as the theories state, why hasn't anyone on earth picked up radio signals yet? Because there are none. If there was an advanced civilization on the moon, someone would have picked up radio signals long before anyone here on Earth had the slightest desire of going to the moon and hiding the truth about it. And before arguing that the advanced civilization is on the “dark side” of the moon, what are the chances that an advanced civilization would stop spreading at exactly the right point to hide from Earth?

Wait! What about astronauts seeing UFOs? The term UFO stands for unidentified flying object and does not equate to alien space ship. By now, space is filled with all kinds of satellites and other junk. Some estimates go as high as 700 for satellites alone, depending on what is counted as a satellite. At a quick glance, almost anything could legitimately be called a UFO.

The impact will blast a crater miles wide. The largest nuclear bomb created crater on Earth is Sedan Crater, and it's only 1,280 feet wide and 320 feet deep. Even with the lower lunar gravity, a lot more force would be needed to blast a crater miles wide. If we were sending nukes into space and the rocket blew up at some point, the entire planet would eventually get a bath in radioactive fallout. It is highly doubtful that any government would be willing to risk this. After all, the U.S. would not be immune, either. Second, the Centaur rocket was empty. Neither explosives or fuel were involved..

The impact will violate international law. Yes, a UN Outer Space Treaty exists, but what it does ban is essentially the militarization of space. Launching a spent rocket into the moon is not militarizing space for the purpose of aggression. As for theMoon Treaty, it again bans usage of the moon for military purposes. Again, LCROSS hardly qualifies as a military purpose.

The impact could disrupt the moon's ecology. What ecology? The moon is a bone dry body that is being baked in a virtual vacuum. There is no ecology of the moon and such a hostile environment could not support life as we know it. Besides being bad for life, radiation striking the moon's surface from solar flares can easily fry high tech devices. In 1989, a solar flare knocked out power in Quebec, Canada, despite having to go through the Earth's protective atmosphere.

The impact could knock the moon out of its orbit and cause all kinds of havoc on Earth as a result. Yes, the moon has a stabilizing effect on the Earth. Simulations have shown that is there was no moon, the Earth could tumble wildly on its axis, creating all kinds of havoc here. However, all one needs to do is look at the moon through a small telescope, or even binoculars, to see that there is no reason to worry about LCROSS knocking the moon out of its orbit. The proof is in all the craters, the largest of which is about 20 miles wide.
LCROSS represents U.S. colonialism. Pure opinion offered by people who hate the United States. How can anything be considered colonialism when no people are being settled on the moon?

Now for some facts about the LCROSS mission. LCROSS was really a two part probe launched by NASA. The first part was a spent Centaur rocket. This rocket would crash into the moon and blast a cloud of debris into space. The LCROSS probe proper would follow about four minutes behind, analyzing the materials ejected from the moon and transmit findings back to Earth before itself too crashed into the lunar surface. Once the raw data had been sent back to Earth, scientists will analyze the findings, looking for evidence of water in the readings from LCROSS. The hope is that water will be found and that this moon water could be used by astronauts when astronauts go back to the moon in the hope of creating a permanently manned outpost.
