image for Moon's 'treasure chest' includes silver and bits of alien

Lunar soil is richer than previously thought, with traces of silver among the complex mix of elements found within one of the moon's craters, according to a new study.

The lunar particles were kicked up when a NASA rocket slammed into the Moon about one year ago, allowing scientists an opportunity to learn about the composition of the lunar soil.

"The moon dust looks like it's a treasure chest of elements" said a lunar space boffin, "in addition to the silver it included water and compounds like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, ammonia, and bits of smashed up, charred alien. We never expected to find that there, now all we have to do is figure out how the aliens got blown to pieces, its a real mystery"

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