So a SpaceX rocket booster is going to crash into the dark side of the moon on March 4th. Is Deep 13 gonna get whacked? Is it going to disrupt the show? How would YOU, my fellow MST3K fan, stop the impending collision? Give Gamera a call? Death Ray?
Solutions needed, stat!
… all I know is that there’re nearly 5 weeks left 'till the Gizmoplex launches, including Season 13.
We’ve seen in the opening that Moon 13 is beneath the surface, so I think we’ll be all right.
All those invention exchanges were leading up to this! I’m thinking the helmet air bag, bean bag pants, and the Mexican jumping bean bag chair could be used to cushion the blow.
Don’t worry, it’s part of Kinga’s plan to get lots more test cases up there without anyone suspecting.
If this is how Wesley Crusher becomes another mug in a jumpsuit, I’m cashing out.
And it’s not Adric, either, because he crashed on Earth and killed the dinosaurs.
Now that’s a deep dive.
Besides, she’s just divert the booster, then say to someone, “Now that’s how Don’t Look Up should have ended, but that movie’s supposed to show how stupid the human race can be. Maybe I just did…until they find us (look of horror)”
Wait. The rocket is crashing into the moon. ON MARCH 4. Hello! It’s a bid to stop Kinga!
Seriously, it’s probably far too late to do anything with this now, but I would love if there’s some mention of this during the live premiere event. (you know, the one on March 4)
“We have top women on it!”
If you’re wondering what @PumaMan is speaking of…
In the scheme of things, it’s not going to be a terribly big bang — equivalent to roughly 3 tons of TNT, or slightly more than the energy released in this explosion:
Moon 13 should be perfectly safe provided it isn’t so unlucky as to be precisely at ground zero (::knocks on wood::). It will probably take scientists a few weeks to pick out the new crater on the moon from the images being beamed back from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Hmmmm… so we all thought the fire and running and screaming in the above-ground module was faked to lure in Jonah, right?
But that scene is from the “not too distant future”, right?
And we saw it in 2017… and 2022 is not-too-distantly future from 2017…
BUT WAS IT NEXT SUNDAY A.D.?!
(and before Discourse warns me, here’s my I-should-really-just-relax-lower-case sentence)
Wait. A. Minute. Isn’t this the plot of the new Roland Emmerich movie?!?
We face the dark side of the moon at least 28 days every month.
Just divert it away from the moon…
…by throwing the Hubble at it
What? Mike already broke it.
This reminds me of one of my favorite riffs.
“Are you immune?”
“No, I’m Lloyd, that’s the mune.”
