So America will be bombing the moon now, has the search for Bin Laden really gotten that desperate?

Are you guys going to be watching?

Bomb the moon? Why are they doing that?

And is it as simple as looking up at the moon on friday to see it?

The impact will send tons and tons of debris shooting into space, debris that is comprised of what the moon is made of. The aim of the project is to record the impact and, using several different methods, determine what substances are present. It is essential for evaluating and planning future mining bases and possible colonies.

And I hear that it will require a telescope to see it clearly.

Read your own articles.
They are shooting a piece of metal into it at very high velocities in attempt to create a significant impact.

Otherwise referred to as bombing.

So solid cannon balls, rockets (non explosive), arrows, catapults, ballistas, ect isn't bombardment?

It's not bombing in the common usage of nowadays.



We don't exactly "bomb" things with arrows, catapults, or cannon balls in usual use now do we?

No, I would not consider this a "bomb."

Anyway, I'm quite sure he was joking LP.

I am of course referring to rockets used by the Indians, the British, and several older (mostly asian) civilizations as artillery.

I know this isn't going to happen, but I wonder what would happen if something big and fast enough hit the moon and split it through the core. Now THAT'd be one for the telescopes!

And then we have the end of Humanity, because of the debris falling down the gravity well...

BTW: A book called "Moonfall" was about what would happen if the Moon was struck by a comet hard enough to break it apart. By Jack McDevitt.

HA! I have you all figured out Dud.

You stole the headline for this thread from Drudge Report.... sneaky bastard!
I guess I wouldn't say that the term "bomb" is wrong... but given its modern connotations, it is a tad misleading.

We used to have a small telescope, but it's long gone now. I doubt binoculars will cut it...

Indeed I did, although I had already watched videos on vuze which had much more detailed information on the procedure and the aim. I took the headline because it's an attention getter.

@Rasq, the impact will be slightly below the average of what the moon regularly gets hit with. We have nothing to worry about.

I would hardly count this as an "Attempt". If you had somebody up against a wall, and you were busy pumping bullets into his torso, you would hardly call shooting him in the foot "An attempt".
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to see how much Agent Orange costs per ton.

So I know this guy who absolutely believes in aliens on the dark side of the moon and Mars and whatnot. How can I ask him how these aliens feel about us shooting the moon without sounding like a total douche?

Just walk up to him and ask:
So, how do you think aliens will perceive our attempt at bombing the moon?

If he seriously believes in Aliens on the moon, a little sarcasm is going to be above his head.
