NASA bombs the moon

Posted: Updated:

NASA has intentionally crashed two spacecraft into the moon's south pole in a search for hidden ice, the AP is reporting.

The crashes had been expected to kick up miles of lunar dust, which NASA scientists would analyze for traces of ice.

NASA hopes to find some lunar water because it would help in setting up a base on the moon. You know, for showers and stuff.

When it was announced that two spacecraft had crashed into the moon, authorities at first suspected Lindsay Lohan and Amy Winehouse of DUI.

Crashing a two-ton space probe into a celestial body is a unique way to look for water. Fairly expensive too. I guess nobody at NASA has ever heard of a divining rod.

NASA bombed the moon on its dark side -- because that's where the moon monsters live.
