Sorry, only 1 out of 3. Landing goes to Soviets (unless you meant manned landing only).

Hehe, and what are you gonna do if someone just decides to move there anyway without paying?

Bitching about how unfair it is to occupy other people's land. Most probably also call for sanctions through the UN Security Council against the hostile forces. Maybe also test some new military gadget on them too.

It's not junk!!!!!! Shocked It's a photogenic foot print, a star-spangled banner and perfectly functional, highly advanced, technology!

It has been ~40 years so perhaps we can say that the USA are not interested in it anymore and thus relinquished all claims by the fact of abandonment? Razz

Yeah they do that. But you should see what armies do in other countries! You wouldn't want to ever leave your country if you knew.

Yep, and it was done just a few weeks ago. It was all over the news. One of the landing sites was imaged and the footprints and other stuff were visible with sufficient resolution.

Moon (mass at impact) = 7.3477x10^22 kg
Centaur (mass at impact) = 2366 kg

If we compare that to something hitting a human body:

Human mass (approx.) = 100kg
Impactor mass = 3.22x10-18 kg (~3 femtograms)

So it would be equivalent to a human being hit by something that weighs about 1/300,000th of a cell (average human cell weighs 1 nanogram).

This is the best I can find. Just the footprint trail, you can't see the individual footprints.

I don't see how you can rationally/logically say that the United States doesn't own (maybe not the whole thing, but at least a portion of) the Moon.

Your rhetoric really did have me convinced for a moment, I'm kind of embarrassed that I was taken in by it.

Land is land even if it's a quarter of a million miles away, first dibs, if another country wants the Moon they buy it from America for a few trillion we could use the money.
I thought we weren't caveman anymore, that sounds kinda primitive. "Yo I got here before u so hah!!!! dumbhead i don't care what u say, i beat u!!!!"

I always thought it was "I saw it first so that makes it mine".

Hmm ... so who was the first to see the moon then?

The asteroid that killed the dinosaurs just crashed into the Earth? lol who cares that it had more power than several atomic bombs.

They don't live on Earth either... anymore. However I thought he meant that crashing is less important than bombing. I've read that it's gonna be a 6-mile-deep explosion, now that's powerful!

I thought more likely a 6-mile high plume. Going 6 miles down would indeed be a very powerful explosion, probably even more powerful than the famous dinosaur killer asteroid.

Borsuc, this thing isn't the size of an asteroid. It's very small, and will barely make a scratch where it is going to hit, and where it's hitting is in permanent shadow, so you wouldn't even be able to see it.

The size is irrelevant, it's mass*velocity^2 that matters.

It is still MUCH slower than a typical asteroid.

The object weighs 1,043 kg (2,300 lb) on earth, and will crash into the moon at about 9,000 km/h (5,600 mph). Someone do the math.
