If you're anything like TheFeed, you spend every waking moment worrying about the apocalyptic consequences of an asteroid or meteor striking earth. Obviously, we need to devote what's left of our lives to this problem.
NASA has blueprints to create a permanent lunar outpost by the 2020s, but those plans need to be expanded according to Jim Burke of International Space University (ISU) in France. The International Space University team is on an ambitious mission: to start building a "lunar biological and historical archive," initially through robotic landings on the moon.
This plan is flawed for a few obvious reasons:
- The robots will turn on us.
- Computers will build the space station out of soup after "Anonymous" hackers get through with the program. Their Lulz could spell our doom.
- It sounds like a lot of work.
- Without vector-graphic triangular spaceships, there is no hope of destroying asteroids.
- Those bastards over at the International Space University have a personal grudge against me due to my shocking theories and outrageous fashion sense.
