Luna Declares War on Brianna Wu

     This message was received from independence leader Adam Selene of the Luna colony via the colony’s HOLMES IV system.

It would seem you do not take our commitment to independence seriously, what with purported Earth politician Brianna Wu, who stands in opposition to everything a free Luna stands for, purposefully mischaracterizing our ability to stand up against the Earth government when she said:

“The moon is probably the most tactically valuable military ground for earth […] Rocks dropped from there have power of 100s of nuclear bombs.”

As has already been explained to this Wu fellow:

‘Small space rocks can indeed do nuclear-weapons-scale damage if hitting the Earth at orbital speeds. But launching one from the moon, even setting aside issues of aiming, would still require escaping the satellite’s gravitational field, a task that requires the power and thrust contained in a huge rocket.”

Our mass drivers are more than capable of doing this.

TANSTAAFL!

     Wu lives in Massachusetts. Please aim there…

    If Wu ever visited the moon, she’d be one of the ones that didn’t listen to the embarkation pressure suit safety lecture and therefore didn’t even make it to pressure.
