Revealed: How the U.S. planned to blow up the MOON with a nuclear bomb to win Cold War bragging rights over Soviet Union

*Scientists were hoping for giant flash on the moon that would intimidate the Soviet Union

*Aim of mission was to launch the nuke by 1959

*Plan was later scrapped due to possible danger to people on Earth

At the height of the space race, the U.S. considered detonating an atom bomb on the moon as a display of America's Cold War muscle.

The secret project, innocuously titled 'A Study of Lunar Research Flights' and nicknamed 'Project A119,' was never carried out.

Seriously though... I wouldn't put it past some 'nutty' scientist wanting to do something as crazy as that just for experimental purposes...

Sounds like the lucifer project may have had its roots with the story in this thread...
