Okay, sure, we don't have any Moonbase Alpha up yet, and all
we've got is one little robot probe named Lunar Prospector doing
some critical scientific exploration, but there is always hope that
someday we can bury enough nuclear waste on the lunar farside
to have it explode and somehow not shatter Luna and send it
*away* from Earth at faster than light speeds into the Milky
Way galaxy, where it will somehow come across inhabited and
usually unfriendly planets at least once each week! And all
the aliens will speak English with British accents!
