When NASA 'bombed' the moon last month, I was on the San Juan river. We made a bunch of sarcastic comments about the implications of the moon bombing, but it appears to have worked:

It turns out there's plenty of water on the moon - at least near the lunar south pole, scientist said Friday.

"Indeed, yes, we found water. And we didn't find just a little bit, we found a significant amount," said Anthony Colaprete, a principal project investigator at NASA's Ames Research Center.

The discovery came from an analysis of data from a spacecraft NASA intentionally crashed into the moon last month.

Colaprete estimated the impact kicked up at least 25 gallons of water.

Most interesting, with the possibilities for further lunar exploration.
Now, where should we bomb next?

Rather than bomb the next planet I think we should just send Bush and Mars. Hey Shrub wanted to go there anyway.

25 gallons of water. You never know just how much an elite will pay for water when Earth soils, and/or, runs out of its own.
