Snippet article in “The Week” regarding literal lunar travel–the federal government approved the first private space mission to the moon. Moon Express is a Florida based company and it hopes to put a lander on the lunar surfaces in 2017. Believe it or not, there was even mention of eventual plans to mine the moon for rare elements and metals. What?! Are you kidding? Don’t mess with the moon! We have enough tsunamis, el-Ninos, etc. to think about, and if you mess with it, it will surely mess with us!
In other equally important news, the federal government has stated that there is little evidence that regular flossing helps prevent tooth decay, another snippet states. So, all of those scowls from our hygienist are all for naught, it’s not our fault for not flossing! (Darn! I have read this report just after I have promised my hygienist that I would be a more faithful flosser!)
