What If I Told You The United States And Russia Planned To Nuke The Moon?

NY PostAt the height of the Cold War, the Soviet Union and the United States found themselves locked in a chilling race to nuke the moon, declassified military documents reveal.

Following the end of the Second World War in 1945, the USSR and the USA spent decades trying to prove their military might to the world.

During this tense era, the two superpowers found themselves locked in an arms race that saw them spend decades scrambling to develop the most powerful armaments.

As the arms race morphed into a space race, the two nations set their sights on the moon and made it their goal to extend their influence beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.

Now, newly declassified documents reveal just how far the superpowers were prepared to go, as they hatched terrifying plans to obliterate part of the moon with a nuclear strike.

Codenamed Project A119, the plan cooked up by the US Air Force in 1958 set out how America could prove its might once and for all.

The moon really had people in a pretzel last century eh? Nobody knew what to do with it but knew they had to do something. The USA and Russia tossing and turning at night over what to do with the moon. Hmmm should we walk on it? Should we nuke it? Should we send a bunch of Apollo missions up to just fly around it? Hmmm not sure but definitely gotta do something.

What a weird thing. Whose girl did the moon fuck? Thing discombobulated everybody. Look at this shit — insane how riled up the moon had everyone:

Meanwhile, the Soviets were cooking up a scheme of their own as part of a project codenamed E-4.

This plan involved striking the moon with a nuclear missile of their own, although this plot faced the same overwhelming risks and difficulties as the Americans’ secret plans.

These chilling Cold War revelations come after The Sun revealed the secret US plans that could have led to the total destruction of the USSR.

Everybody wanting to attack the moon. Gravest threat to international stability: Moon. Crazy. It’s just a fucking planetary satellite, guys. Just a big ass rock trapped in Earth’s orbit. Gravity and mass and centripetal forces and shit. Maybe if you had listened to Drive Time before it was cancelled RIP Drive Time you would know these things.

Nuke the moon? Friends, we’re putting a base on the moon and you can bet your ass that base will be AMERICAN.
