Heinlein's Ghost Strikes Again!

In case you missed the news, an explosion yesterday during testing of SpaceShipTwo at Mojave Air and Space Port has killed three Virgin Galactic employees and put three more in the hospital, two in critical condition. Nearly simultaneously, NASA announced that they'd discovered that a computer scheduled to fly in the International Space Station had clearly and obviously been sabotaged.

Now, I don't mean to make light of the Mojave tragedy, but readers of Heinlein's Rocket Ship Gallileo should immediately realize why these two events happened and how they're related. As Heinlein warned us 60 years ago, this is all obviously part of The Vast International Conspiracy to Cover Up The Faked Moon Landings, and all clearly intended to keep us from learning the truth about that secret Nazi base that's been up there on the dark side since 1943.

And if you believe that, I've got some stock options I'd like to sell you...
