The Moon’s Demise


The moon tumbled down.

Its string snapped by space debris.

Stars reached out. Too late.

  1. Poor thing. I read in somebody’s blog recently (I’ve forgotten whose) that a significant proportion of shooting stars are actually bits of astronaut poo burning up on re-entry into the atmosphere. Maybe the Moon just wasn’t that keen on certain stars getting anywhere near it.

  2. The stars are never on time. Figures…why couldn’t they reach out just a litttttttle earlier?

    **Interesting Fact** The ISS has to keep its windows clean due to space debris orbiting Earth.

    **Another Interesting Fact ** The moon is actually tumbling toward Earth, but it’s orbital speed keeps it from colliding.
