Following the news that there are oases of water-rich soil which could sustain astronauts on the Moon, NASA has announced a further research project to examine the feasibility of exploiting the Moon’s vast cheese resources.
The initial stages of the project involves teams of astro-mice being let loose which scientists believe will lead them to the areas where the cheese is concentrated. Licensed cheese mines could then be established on selected sites within a matter of months.
Dr Buck Finklater, NASA’s Cheese Project Manager said “We’re very excited about this. Mooncheese has a cheddar-like consistency with hazelnut notes and a lingering buttery after taste. It is perfect for fondues and goes really well with pickles of any kind. I particularly like it on an oatcake”.
“We’ll need to be careful how much cheese we take from certain places though,” joked Finklater. “We don’t want the man in the moon to look like he’s had a stroke”.
