Quick question….

What is the best way to figure out if there is water trapped in ice on the moon?

Launch a missile at it of course! That’s what NASA is doing as told in this odd story- NASA’s mission to bomb the moon. Strange indeed.

Finally a well written article on the Iran situation. Though many wanted to see change there, it seems the result there may actually be as initially reported. Apparently Ahmadinejad has a lot of support among the poor and those who dislike the West with all of their threats and interference. Also the Iranians haven’t forgotten how the US backed a coup in 1953 that toppled their democratically elected leader Mossadegh. It’s more complicated than just that though as many countries do business with Iran such as China and Russia and have an interest in keeping things the way they are. The candidate Mousavi who ran against Ahmadinejad was really not a great choice for the people either as he was in power before in the 80’s and oversaw much brutality.
