Brainy British boffin, Bill Broadbonce, is claiming that he is going to be the first man to set foot on the moon since the last Apollo mission in 1907.
Broadbonce speaking from his Bournemouth home told The Spoof:
"I've invented a new propulsion system a bit like that beam me up Scotty thing on Dr Who and it will enable me to get to the moon in double quick time.
It works on old chip fat and potato skins and so far in tests it looks to be fantastic"
Our Science Correspondent Steve Einstein is sceptical however:
"I can't really see this working to tell the truth. It sounds a bit too far fetched in my opinion. When I asked Bill for some kind of proof for his claims he just tapped the side of his nose and said wait and see mate. I'ain't no nutter"
And famous astronaut, James T Kirk told us:
"I doubt if it could happen. The Federation would never sanction such a move and that's even before the Klingons have their say"
We will just have to wait and see how things develop and if Bill boldly goes anywhere you'll hear about it in The Spoof first.
