If a group of Mexican scientists have their way, we will be seeing the Mexican flag on the surface of the Moon very, very soon.
According to a very reliable source I’ve never heard of, a group of scientists from Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM) is working on deploying eight small robots that will eventually set foot on the surface of the Moon as soon as 2019. Once there, they say, they will do the most obvious thing one does when getting there: PLANT A FREAKING FLAG!
But that will only be the beginning, I’m told. Sources close to the project assure me the next phase will be even more exciting: A taquería!
