Can you light up the moon with laser pointers?

    "We can try to illuminate either a new moon or a full moon. The new moon is darker, making it easier to see our lasers. But the new moon is a trickier target, because it's mostly visible during the day-washing out the effect."

    That sounds remarkably close to a Furuli-ism.

    Just a guess but i somehow doubt simple lasers would get thru the atmosphere.

    They would, just not very much of them.

    Forget cowboys launched from the shuttle to buckle nuclear warheads on nasty asteroids headed for earth. We need some of those nasty-ass lasers on the moon!

    We need sharks with frickin' lasers attached to their head!

    I think it could be entirely possible but it would cause the moon to melt because it's made of cheese. This would create a kind of intergalatic "fondu pot" if you will, thus drawing aliens from around the universe to partake because, hey, who doesn't love some great fondu?

    Well, maybe not the Klingons... they love gak.
