U.S. Planned To Nuke The Moon Back In The 50’s? WTFrick?

Apparently back in the 1950’s right LOL. For some strange rather (Stupid A*s Reason if you ask me) America of course at the time was in the race for space exploration with the U.S.S.R. (Russia) then, was planning to detonate an atom bomb on the Moon… Ok… see this is just stupid, ARE THEY SERIOUS ROTFL. AN ATOM BOMB?

If I’m thinking like a scientist here on this one (I like Astronomy), but I’m thinking doing that will cause some major issues of our very existence if they did so. I will explain of course why.


U.S. Planning to Nuke The Moon, Why That’s Really Bad.


Ok let’s think relative here simplistically even, we have the Sun, we have the Moon, and in between is the Earth. So think now, what controls the water tides and lands shifts (Man I’m Glad I Don’t Live In California!) on earth? Well.. you have a thing called gravity, and if you upset the laws of it whether it is  pulling and pushing (Like A Back And Forth Force Type Nature) it can cause a few bad,BAD, things to occur LOL.

  • Tidal Waves
  • Land Shifting Uncontrollably On Earth, If It Would Be Enough To Disrupt The Moon’s Orbit Around Earth. (Earthquakes)
  • Having A Moon Is Very Important You See, It’s Not Just Sitting There For Show And Tell Because If It Let’s Say: Happens To Be Destroyed Well Then, We Would Probably um… Drift Off Out Of Orbit Into Space Who Knows Where! Haha.


U.S. Planned To Nuke The Moon: Why In The First Dam Place?

Well it all started back in the 50’s when doing the space race era, when America wanted to make a statement (A Crazy One At That).

They felt inclined to do so by displaying their so-called “Cold War Muscle” if you will, to I guess show off their greatness for the rest of the world to see and take notice…

They even went as far as to set up a project  mission for this called secret project “A119” LOL, and THANK GOD they never followed through with that one. Astronomer Carl Sagan, was a graduate student at that time.

He was the one that was to calculate the elements that would be needed for the Atom Bomb to be effective for detonation on the moon.

And the thing is to if NASA would have went through with all of this, it would probably more in likely would have sparked imitation in the U.S.S.R, and would have more in likely given the U.S. the upper hand in space exploration projects.

There is also a biography that Sagan wrote about a security breach on the whole project in 59′, or the information about all this getting leaked out (Click Here)

And it was planned to send the Nuclear Device, from an unknown location from Earth to the moon, and detonate the Atom Bomb on Impact for that mission back then. (LOL and they say the Government is the unseen victim to all of this of these stupid schemes. GET REAL! LOL.)
