When the stakes are high, people get a little crazy sometimes. Especially when those people are in government:
During the height of the Cold War, U.S. officials debated whether to detonate nuclear bomb on the moon in order to send a message to the Soviet Union, the Asian News International reports.
The secret project dubbed, “A Study of Lunar Research Flights” and nicknamed “Project A119,” was seriously being considered until it was scrapped because military officials were worried it would hurt the people on Earth.
It pains me to realize that after all these years, Frank J. has been stealing his best material.
