Breaking News!!!

Alien craft visit Earth! Well, not quite aliens [just Americans...], but certainly from outer space.
It seems there has actually been an American moonbase on the dark side of the Moon since the late 1970's. Named Moonbase Alpha, the base has it's own specially designed craft. They are suitable for travelling around the Moon's surface but are capable, in certain conditions, of making the return trip to Earth. This now ageing fleet has been recalled to Earth now that the Cold War is well over and secrecy is no longer required. The fleet of "eagles" will be mothballed and replaced with a modern fleet capable of travel to other planets in the solar system; Mars being the obvious destination.
WoW!
This shot was taken today as the fleet arrived at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Just an interesting note on a related topic. I went to NASA's Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama (Anyone know where that is?) with two of my daughters. We had a great time. We were able to perform tests in a mock up space shuttle, experience 1/6 gravity, use an MMR, rock climb, and so much more! The finale was to be a part of a space mission and take on the roles of assigned positions within the crew or mission control.

I would love to go into outer space, but I am afraid of heights!

Does anyone know about the owner of Virgin Atlantic Airlines and his involvement in space travel? If so, share with the group!

kitty milo said...

but I don't know if i'm right!

Nice try Mr. Woody these things look like something off star trek.

Mr. Teehan said...

Kitty Milo - Very good job of finding the website. You are correct. Richard Branson is the owner. I read through the website you found, but did not find the new area he and his company are expanding into. It was featured on "60 Minutes" about a year ago (I'm not sure if you have that show or not). Keep looking to find out what he is currently involved in (hint: it has a lot to do with what Mr. Woody posted on this blog).

i don't really think there's a NASA moon base right now. in a book, it said that NASA WILL have a moon base in the FUTURE. late april fools joke, nice one mr. woody!
