The Moon, history of

The moon, as we all know, was built by the Romans during the reign of the Emperor Augustus, to reduce street crime at night and electricity costs. The moon took fourteen years to build, and was finished in the year 7. The moon is made mostly from cheese produced in what is now Switzerland, and the holes in the cheese can be seen clearly from earth, nearly 10 miles away.

This is my favourite photograph from the previous set. I should make it into a postcard.

Frenchman’s Flat, Nevada - Atomic Cannon Test - History’s first atomic artillery shell fired from the Army’s new 280-mm artillery gun. Hundreds of high ranking Armed Forces officers and members of Congress are present. The fireball ascending, 05/23/1953

(Ed. note - Although  the caption provided with the photo states 5/23/1953, most records indicate this test occurred on May 25, 1953.)

I hadn’t even been aware that atomic artillery shells had ever existed.
