The Moon: God maketh and NASA taketh away

Cape Canaveral, Florida. NASA is under enormous pressure today after the disastrous mission by its moon bound rocket resulted in the clinical destruction of earth's major satellite.

Inexplicably, the rocket that was propelled to the moon was a army surplus nuclear missile with its warhead still attached and nobody at NASA bothered to check this out. The rocket hit the surface and detonated a huge nuclear explosion that utterly destroyed the moon, reducing it to cloud of dust, with no permanent form.

Scientists are now considering what effect this will have on the earth's environment. One thing for sure is that there will be no more oceanic or river tides, as the gravity pulling effects of the moon are no more. No more full moons also means many cultural festivals will lack credibility. And there won't be any more moon inspired songs such as Blue Moon or Fly Me To Moon, even Dark Side of the Moon.

NASA is under the pump and they have a lot of questions to answer.

NB NASA are proposing flying an enormous piece of Swiss cheese into space to compensate for the moon's demise.

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