Abandoned SpaceX Rocket Will Crash Into The Moon Within Weeks, Scientists Say  Empty Abandoned SpaceX Rocket Will Crash Into The Moon Within Weeks, Scientists Say

A chunk of a SpaceX rocket that blasted off seven years ago and was abandoned in space after completing its mission will crash into the Moon in March, experts say.

The rocket was deployed in 2015 to put into orbit a NASA satellite called the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR).

A week after the rocket stage whizzed close to the Moon, Gray observed it again and concluded it would crash into the Moon's far side on March 4 at more than 5,500 miles per hour (9,000 kilometers per hour).

The question is.... What might this 4 tonne impact at 5000 miles a hour do to the moon and/or affect the Moons orbit around Earth?

If as some suspect, there is an alien civilization or alien spaceport on that side of the moon, they may not be too pleased.
it's rather typical of humans though, we fill space with junk and allow things to crash land anywhere, we are so untidy.

The crazy thing is, there has already been talk about trying to change the orbit of the moon by crashing things in to it, all in the name of sorting out so called 'climate change'...


I despair at the lunacy of the so called intelligent people, now and in recent few years...

We never seem to learn that changing things to suit us can have disastrous consquences, these people should have carers and be held in a secure environment.

There’s no money in cleaning up after oneself. That’s the message of capitalism.

And, making it illegal or requiring industrial scrubbing after the fact is simply unfair or unproductive "regulation". https://www.epi.org/publication/understanding-the-anti-regulation-agenda-the-basics/

These are the by-products of freedom. We have these discussions whenever they blow up another oil rig off of Galveston or Crystal Beach, Texas.

The spread of space trash, or the great Pacific garbage patch, is not unlike the spread of a pandemic. If it infringes on our freedom, forget about it.

You have a profound misunderstanding of everything that happened in that article.

Gohmert is a raving right-wing lunatic whose proposal to alter the Earth's orbit to help climate change was actually his version of Trump's suggestion that we drink disinfectants to fight Covid.

Gohmert (Texas Republican) is the only person in any position of power I've ever heard proposing altering the orbit of the moon, and he was roundly ridiculed for it.

Just for a bit of context, he once suggested that if we built human colonies on Mars to save the human race, the gay people should be abandoned because they won't procreate, and he's also argued that climate change should be embraced because we'll be able to grow more food ...

No misunderstanding... I said there has already been talk of moving the moon... And that article shows it has been talked about... Where's the misunderstanding?

If you're going to despair every time a moron who gets 1 vote in Congress says something stupid, you're in for a world of hurt!

Truth be told, this rocket could never have done more than make a minor crater on the Moon's surface. The Moon has been hit by far bigger meteors, travelling at far greater speeds. It's the size of Africa -- no way something so comparitvely small could alter its orbit in the slightest.

Well, my advice? Don’t read the news.
It’s pretty much designed to keep you anxious....keep you anxious, keep you imprisoned.

Come on, you know that!

Or do read the news, but always bearing in mind that it's often designed to stir up drama because that gets people's attention.
