So, we bombed the moon. For science. It's all part of an experiment to detect water on the lunar surface. We all know by now there's no water on the moon (NASA, I just saved you $80 million), but what we don't know is what it looks like to bomb the moon. Now we do, and it's underwhelming. It's not just underwhelming, it's boring. Here it is (good luck not fast-forwarding):
As Chris Albrecht writes: "Michael Bay needs to step in and start manning mission control, because only then would we get to see all the pyrotechnics and unearthing of an ancient civilization of Mooninites that is now hell-bent on destroying us if not for the actions of a grizzled, washed-up former marine and single father and his rag-tag crew who duct tape two missiles to a heretofore secret alien spacecraft we’ve been keeping in Area 51 and nuke those moon bastards back to hell." Oh, by the way, people woke up at 4:00 a.m. to watch this (from Earth).
