    So, this is an industrial map showing where to dig for different elements?

    I’m fairly certain that moon is where Fruity Pebbles are harvested from.

    The moon is so gay. No, really…

    I’ve had enough of this astro-vandalism. It’s gotten to the point where you can’t put up a white natural satellite anymore without taggers covering the whole thing with paint.

    Reminds me of Apollo 17 where Harrison Schmitt found orange soil in the rim of a crater. Right after that Ron Evans, the command module pilot started seeing orange crater rims all over the place from orbit.

    Nobody had noticed the color before.

    I feel a little dumb. I had no idea there was lava on the moon.

    Ooops, got my sites crossed; the rainbow toad does not appear to be mentioned on BB, but you can learn about it here: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/07/lost-rainbow-toad-found-after-87-years/

    It’s proof of my theory that the universe is actually a giant bowl of Lucky Charms. Repent, for the milk is near!

    The moon is a harsh mistress.

    Rainbow Dash x Princess Luna? Sure, I can kinda see how it works.

    What? No water? Gosh for 20 years all NASA wanted to tell us about was all the water on the Moon. They even spent $78M to make a big, big public splash about all the water (all 200 pounds of it). And now they release a picture with -no- indication of where all the water is?

    On the other hand, it’s important to most of us who plant to mine the Moon to know where the titanium is. As soon as we figure out how to squeeze all that water out of the rocks into bathtubs.

    Why do I think I hear the faint chant of “Drill Baby Drill!” in the background? :(
