New Pictures From Moon Prove Once Again That You Can't Take People Anywhere

Look at all that trash the Apollo 17 astronauts left on the moon. (Seriously, look. Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter recently zoomed down to 25 kilometers above the surface, and the pictures it has sent back are amazing.) You can see the shape of the moon buggy and everything, just sitting out there to rust like on some American's front yard.

Photoshopped! I can tell by the pixels!

But yeah, that is pretty cool.

Vehicles cannot rust on the moon.

@Art Yucko I'm mildly upset that I couldn't be the one to inform someone they were wrong on the internet. That wasn't sarcasm.

@Art Yucko Ha ha ha. I knew someone was going to call me out on that. Would "collect dust" be better, do you think? Can things collect dust on the moon?

Art Yucko (#1,321)

@Dave Bry Yes. SPACE DUST.

@Art Yucko MOON DUST.

Is there a secret Dave Bry/Alex Balk fued, and every time Alex make Dave angry he finds a way to sneak a post in about the moon? I'm going to carry on thinking that. It makes the internet better.

@Joey Camire It took a lot of restraint to not add an editor's note. Fucking Bry. Fucking Moon.

So the moon wants to be the interplanetary West Virginia, eh? Needs more broken appliances, first.

I guess that means the parts for the lunar lander are still in working order and will function when someone tries to operate it again.
