Someone over at NASA is mulling over shooting a chunk of the space station at the moon when it's done with its "usable life." Hello? Silent Running, anyone?
Actually, this isn't the first time I've heard about this. Last time around, as I remember, the idea was to strap a Shuttle to it, and push it to the moon, using said shuttle as a kind of glorified Isuzu Pup, towed behind the world's most expensive RV. Well, beats the hell out of letting it burn up, I suppose.
