What is the Moon Bomb?

Simply put, the ‘Moon Bomb’ (as it has come to be popularly called) is a large missile that NASA is firing at the moon. On july 18th, NASA launched a spectacular mission to bomb the moon. Their Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying a missile that will blast a hole in the lunar surface. The missile will be steered by a shepherding spacecraft that will guide it towards its target – a crater close to the Moon’s south pole. Scientists expect the blast to be so powerful that a huge, 30 mile high plume of debris will be ejected.  Space scientists want to see if any water ice or vapour is revealed in the cloud of debris. If so it could provide vital supplies for a manned moonbase.

The rocket will produce a spectacular explosion that should be visible in amateur astronomers’ telescopes.

Don’t believe Us? Look at the links at the end of this post, including NASA’s LCROSS homepage, and you will.

What is the Fauxist ‘Moon Bomb’ Amateur Telescopy Party? Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Moon Bomb

The Fauxist ‘Moon Bomb’ Amateur Telescopy Party (or FMBATP) is a ecstatic educational celebration of the wondrous achievements of NASA, cosmic colonialisms, the divine mathematics of rocketry, and the bright future of anarcho-libertarian space. The FMBATP will encompass 3 international media-linked sites, each of which will be hosted by Fauxist luminaries and local cult figures. Media uplinks will allow you to converse and carouse about the progress of the missiles work, and share in global efforts at creating and fostering contestational space, at fighting military-industrial megalomania. (See other Fauxist publications on this site ie “There has to be a bit more on the moon for me” on this site for deeper investigations into these topics.)

As We train Our telescope lenses on the south pole of our moon, awaiting a vision unique throughout all history, learn about contestational representations of the moon & stars throughout history, neocolonial astrologics, moon conspiracies, and create paeans to the plateaus of patriarchal panache.

The night of October 8 will be forever remembered. The Fauxist ‘Moon Bomb’ Amateur Telescopy Party will be something to tell your grandchildren about, as you graze up against them in the database-fluid.

The impact will occur 10:41:53pm

In other Moon Bomb News: “Conspiracy & belief under Postmodernity, or ‘If you believe they put a bomb on the moon, bomb on the moon’”

1. An aside: The Moon Bomb comes hot on the heels of the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. What a difference 60 years makes!

2. Cult experimental San Francisco queer group ‘Heticide’, and Fauxist Founding Member Regrette have written a song about the Moon Bomb implying that the bombing of the moon under a scientific auspice is in fact another blatant attack (like the deployment of the first lunar landing) on the queer utopian colonies residing on the dark side of the moon.   Miss-Atomic-Bomb-Magnet[1]

    My own theory is that those who are seriously worried about the LCROSS mission are concerned about their fellow moonbats.
