NASA and the Russians have just released plans for fake moon colonization, set to take place withing the next 10-40 years. Let;s face it, the original race to the moon was exciting. The competing countries were reminded about this by that Ryan Gosling movie. They remembered how good those days were, always trying to the the first and out-do the other guy. So they are bringing it back! The new fake moon race is on! It’s is going to be off the chain! Imagine what we can do with today’s technology!
It was quite a thing to be a part of, back in the day. It was a close race, but ultimately the communists didn’t have what it took. The world was concerned. There were a few moments it looked like they might do it. But in the end they couldn’t innovate quickly enough to keep up. People don’t realize the amount of calculations people did on blackboards to do the last fakes.
No one really believed we could figure out how to get to the moon by writing on chalkboards. But we went along with it. It was more fun to let ourselves get swept up in the rush of the whole thing. No one really believed that all that gold foil was really doing anything. But it looked a little bit futuristic, so what the heck!
How will it compete with other shows on TV?
It’s tough. The battle for our TV hours continues to escalate, and the moon stuff is up against stiff competition. You can expect nothing less than a no-holds-barred slugfest.
And this is not even getting into how much more difficult it will be to keep things under wraps.
How will they do it? Who has superior special effects? Who can keep a secret better in the internet world? Will they get caught? And, most importantly, who will win?
This time around, it’s anyone’s ball game.
The USA can do some cool stuff with texting and communist social media platforms. Russia knows how to hack into elections. It’s all way more advanced than last time.
It’s going to be good! Get that popcorn popping!
It might be almost as good as Homecoming, the series. Starring Julia Roberts!
And we don’t need to go to the moon anyway, do we?
No, we don’t. There isn’t much for us to do there. No air, etc. Plus, the aliens are coming to us. They might be friendly, or they might be here to wipe us out and reshape the planet to resemble their home world, before their colony ships get here.
