How The US Planned To Blow Up The Moon To Win The Cold War
In a secret project recently discovered, the United States planned to blow up the moon with a nuclear bomb in the 1950s as a display of the country’s strength during the Cold War space race.
The secret project, called “A Study of Lunar Research Flights”, as well as “Project A119” was never carried out but initially intended to intimidate the Soviet Union after their launch of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, which demonstrated their technological power, the Daily Mail reports.
The sight of a magnificent nuclear flash from Earth was meant to terrify the Soviet Union and boost US confidence, physicist Leonard Reiffel, 85, told the Associated Press. The nuclear device would have been launched from a missile from an unknown location. It would have ignited upon impact with the moon, causing a massive explosion that was visible from Earth.
Fox News Gags Guest After He Calls Network a ‘Wing of the Republican Party’
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas E. Ricks was unceremoniously kicked off Fox News after he dared to “speak truth to power” by accusing the network of “operating as a wing of Republican Party.”
The defense expert and author of a recently published book on American military command was invited to speak on the issue of Benghazi — namely the September 11th attack on the US consulate that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Fox News has been relentless in its pursuit of a cover-up narrative, and Ricks was invited to offer his thoughts on the matter.
But the three-minute interview was abruptly cut in half after it became clear from the onset the Ricks was not about to play ball.
“I think that Benghazi generally was hyped, by this network especially,” Ricks told Happening Now co-host Jon Scott. “When you have four people dead…how do you call that hype?” a stunned Scott replied. “How many security contractors died in Iraq, do you know?” Ricks retorted.
