    The purpose is supposedly to find water - which India already has. The big deal for me is two fold. Firstly, the lack of collective knowledge, interest, and discussion surrounding the event despite it's being 9 days away. No media discussion for something that's unprecedented and rather historic. Second, I think there's a ton of ramifications for this type of act which warranted addressing/discussing. We're essentially launching a rocket into the moon. That, in my mind, constitutes a weapon in space and modifying a celestial body - both of which I bet we'd have a problem with if any other country was doing it.

    Since India has just this month proven there is in fact water on the moon there is no need for a destructive rocket attack against the planet.

    Damn Talloulou, this has to rank as an all time record for taking a thread off topic in both trajectory and velocity. Congratulations, well done.

    Because it's cool. Like making a big fire on the beach. But it's also destructive and before we start doing destructive things in space I'd like to see a discussion. A president address on the topic.

    Re: Praying to Obama

    What about other possibilities? Do we know that changing the shape of the moon and/or setting off a sigfnificantly explosion won't subtly alter the moon's rotation?

    Furthermore, why is this NECESSARY?

    I don't really believe that we need to be blowing chunks out of the moon without a damn good reason.

    I know. Well admittedly I began doing it in another thread but that thread had a legit discussion going. This one seemed ripe for the taking and was stupid enough that I was guilt free about doing so. Nobody pays much mind to the science and technology threads. So there's a method to the madness.

    This is a good illustration between the difference between men running things and women running things.

    Men: "Let's blow **** up!"
    Other men: "COOL! Good idea!"

    Well back in the day a bunch of men actually considered nuking the moon as a display of machismo. It's hard to wonder if this isn't all that similar.

    India trumped whatever scientific legitimacy this mission might have had about a week ago.

    It's also worth noting they did it without launching a rocket into the South Pole. Huh. Go figure.

    So, what you're saying is that we could potentially save millions/billions/trillions except we're having another penis size comparison contest with another nuclear country?

    Awesome.
