"Tests have been carried out on ground penetrating missiles using 'bunker buster' technology that could be fired into the depths of dark lunar craters to look for ice."

You need ice because water is a fairly important part of most settlements.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Apparently a bag of moon ice will cost you a lot less than a standard bag of Earth Ice.

And it also is better in a glass of Pepsi.

But I also heard that these measures have been taking place because the face on the moon had been looking at George W Bush "in a funny way".

True, I suppose this can only be a good thing. But then they really should concentrate their efforst on Mars instead. I mean we haven't even put a man on Mars yet.

uh-ohh! China - evacuate all your embassies, NOW!

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what hes most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

Hold on though, if no-one lives on it... can't anyone just claim it? Bagsy Jupiter... and its moons!

One of Saturn's moons might have life on it. It's Titan, cause they say there are oceans underneath its icy surface. But who's to say we can't claim it anyway?
