Mystery rocket crater on Moon sparks fears

If alien beings aren’t already among us, they may be getting awfully close.

Evidence has come to light that aliens may be trying to set up a base on the Moon as a strategic location to rain Star Wars rockets down on the Earth.

A mystery rocket of unknown origin crashed onto the Moon and left a impact crater the likes of which have never been seen before.

Every space-exploring country on Earth has denied that the rocket was theirs. Certain countries of course (China and Russia come to mind) are diabolical liars. But if they had launched it, NASA would’ve gotten wind of it. Besides, there’s something about the crater left by this rocket that suggests it is of alien origin.

The crater, discovered by a NASA lunar orbiter, is a ‘double-impact’ crater — two craters immediately next to each another, one 60 feet across, and the other 54 feet in diameter. This indicates, said NASA, that the rocket had a large mass on each end of it, consistent with the design of a spacecraft. 

This is the first time a double-impact crater has been seen on the Moon. No other rocket-impact impressions on the Moon, including the four Apollo craters left during the Moon landings of the 1970s, ever created double craters.

A rocket hurtling through space on a collision course with the Moon was spotted by astronomers several months ago. It crashed on the Moon in March, but was only recently photographed by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

If the rocket wasn’t intended to land safely on the Moon as the first step to a lunar base, then it was headed for Earth, veered off course and hit the Moon. Now, if the errant rocket had the accuracy of, say, one those North Korean duds that Kim keeps shooting off, then we may have little to fear from the alien planet whence it came — for now. But what about the next rocket they fire?

“Something is going on,” said a NASA scientist, “something we’ve never seen before.”
