Lunatic Cringe: The Quest For The War In Heaven

When I was a kid, one of my favorite science fiction series was Space 1999. In the series, there was a Moon base where the Moon kept all of the Earth’s nuclear waste. An unbelievable explosion was set off and it knocked the moon out of Earth’s orbit. It sent the inhabitants of the Moon base hurtling uncontrollably through space.

Isaac Asimov pointed out that any explosion capable of knocking the Moon out of its orbit would actually blow it apart and, even if it did leave orbit, it would take hundreds of years to reach the nearest star.

He was attempting to debunk the possibility of an explosion knocking the Moon out of orbit. However, at the time of the television show and the Asimov comment, no one was aware of secret project that was thought up by Military brass in the 1950’s.

The US Air Force in co-operation with ex-Nazi scientists developed a top-secret plan to detonate a nuclear bomb on the Moon as a display of military might during the Cold War. The project was called A-119. The explosion was to be conducted on the Far side of the Moon. The bomb was planned to be detonated on the edge of the Moon, the mushroom cloud would be illuminated by the Sun. The bomb was supposed to be at least as large as the one used on Hiroshima at the end of World War II.

The strange thing is, that by some synchronicity, I was speaking of the secret project in 2009 and it wasn’t until recently the quest to nuke the Moon had somehow resurrected on the internet and trended as a “weird news” story on Yahoo news.

The main aim of the proposed detonation was a PR exercise and a show of one-upmanship to the Soviet Union. The Air Force wanted a mushroom cloud so large it would be visible on Earth. The US was lagging behind in the space race and they were convinced that dropping an atomic bomb on the Moon would send a message of Military might to the Communists.

No one really knows why the project was scrapped; however, it paved the way for a program to be devised called Project Thor. Another secret proposal that would turn space into a militarized battle ground.

Project Thor was named after the hammer-wielding Norse god who could rain metal death down as he pleased. The project has been rumored to still being in operation and could be the reason why there are so many UFO sightings now. Project Thor is basically summed up as ‘an orbiting tungsten telephone pole with small fins and a computer in the back for guidance. Once given the launch command, a satellite would drop the ‘pole,’ which would then speed up until going at orbital velocity, around 10 miles a second. At this speed, when it hit a ground based target, it would have the explosive equivalent of a small-yield nuclear weapon, and would also have great penetrating power because of its long, thin profile.

It is becoming less of a secret that there is a secret space program that is underway and the recent launching of he X-37 B is evidence of this. The United States somehow feels that need to condemn the North Koreans for launching a rocket into space even though apart from the NASA programs we see publicly, the military arm of the space program has been secretly developing a battleground in the shy.

Almost got the tee shirt about 6 years ago. Like the tee shirt design. Nuking the moon would be kind of cool.
