“blow up the moon” and “explode a nuclear bomb on the moon” are two different things.
Where's the kaboom. There was supposed to be a moon-shattering kaboom.
” blow up the moon and explode a nuclear bomb on the moon are two different things.”
As per usual, the commentary on FR is more perceptive than the third-rate crap dished out by the MSM.
To put things in perspective, a scientific assessment of the likely consequences of a collision between the asteroid YU55 and the earth, as reported by the “Telegraph” of London:
“If it were to hit the earth, the asteroid, named YU55, would have an impact equivalent to 65,000 atom bombs and would leave a crater more than six miles wide and 2,000ft deep.”
So in other words if we were able to deliver 65,000 atom bombs to a specific location on the moon simultaneously, we might have been able to do some significant damage to it (but we still wouldn’t have “blown it up”). Indeed, the crater in the scenario above would be small potatoes compared to those which are visible (essentially to the naked eye) from earth.
