What is all the sudden interest in the Moon again? Ok, we’ve had the USA up there, the Russians have dropped a couple of robots down there and the Chinese are building a new Shangri Lah on the dark side. And now we hear that Israel, via a privately funded mission almost managed to get a lander on to the Moon, and India has launched a mission.
Makes me wonder what all the fuss is about. I have this theory that they’ve discovered a way to grow seeds and rice on the dark side, they will strap a couple of dozen rockets to our nearest planetary neighbour and turn the whole thing round to show a new, green and pleasant land – with rolling adverts.
So, to assist in my quest for knowledge, I’m going to invest in a new TELESCOPE which may help to find out what the heck is going on. How about this one?
