The European Space Agency (ESA) probe SMART-1 has, as expected, discovered the original moon landing site.

The project's founder, Dr V. Beardly, was quoted as saying, 'It is really good that we can finally put those conspiracy theories to rest. As if the moon landing was staged in New Mexico! The very notion of the idea is absurd.'

The landing site, unearthed in northern Scandinavia as the probe was re-entering the Earth's atmosphere, confirms NASA's original claims that they did not stage the moon landing in Area 51, or the Nevada desert.

The founder of NASA was not available for comment, following his death many decades ago. However, the current head of NASA, Mr D. Space, was. He said, 'I'm glad it has all finally been brought out into the open, and we could prove all those conspiracy theorists wrong. Why would we do it in the desert? The Moon's grey, and the desert is an orangy colour. If we'd done that, (the conspiracy theorists) would have called our bluff decades ago!'

This new information raises many questions. Why did they choose Scandinava, as that doesn't look particularly like the moon? Will man ever really land on the moon? Talking again to Dr Beardly, the answer seems to be 'No'. He is quoted as saying, 'No.' Upon further questioning, the doctor fell asleep.

Maybe this could be seen as a metaphor for the slump in space exploration since the 'moon landing', or maybe he was trying to tell me something else. Whatever he meant, I'm sure it was very important.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
