NASA Tricked By Fake Asteroid Hoax

Asteroid Hoax

Some experts say all the pictures of NASA with the asteroid stem from a single file photo.

Cape Canaveral, FL—An article on the website alleged yesterday that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which had been all over the news lately regarding the possibility that an office-building-sized asteroid would be buzzing by Earth this week and getting as close as 17,000 miles to us, might have been the victim of an elaborate, cruel hoax.

For nearly four years now, NASA had told all its friends and family and teammates about their relationship with the asteroid, named 2012DA14. But the Twitter and Facebook accounts of 2012 DA14 seem now to show posts and photos of an as-yet unidentified rock hurtling through space.

The article said the site conducted their own investigation into the asteroid and, “were able to discover online chatter among the perpetrators that was certainly the ultimate proof of this, the joy they were taking. The casualness among themselves they were talking about what they accomplished.”

Neil Armstrong Dies On Earth At The Age Of 82

Neil Armstrong

Little known fact: NASA originally intended to fake the moon landing to save time and money. They hired up-and-coming filmmaker Brian DiMaio (left, shown with astronaut Neil Armstrong, right) to pull off the hoax. The results were so poor that NASA was forced to go through with the actual trip to the moon.

Cincinnati, OH—Astronaut Neil Armstrong, who famously set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, died Sunday after complications arose from heart-bypass surgery earlier this month. He was 82.

It’s really hard to add to any legacy or top any achievement that reads, “First man to set foot on the moon,” but we have some space to fill, so here you go:

Armstrong served in the Navy as a pilot during the Korean War and earned three medals. After the war he got his aeronautical engineering degree from Purdue University. He was selected by NASA in September 1962 to be an astronaut, and first went into space in the Gemini 8 mission in 1966. He landed on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission.

TDQ Tech For The Week Of 5/7/12

The GrinderyIn this week’s TDQ Tech, The Grindery gang bring you less-than-thrilling news on the E.T. front, and a report about the discontinuation of a toy very popular from our childhood.

Well, we can’t say we’re surprised about either of these stories. Poor kids today are stuck inside bubble-wrapped, and poor NASA can’t catch a break. Damn shame.
