Elon Musk Just Went Full On Nerd On Us When He Tweeted SpaceX’s Flight Around Moon Ad
Elon Musk is a name almost everyone has heard of even if you don’t know exactly what he does. He is a man like no other and can be referred to as the closest thing our earth has to Iron Man. He is ‘THE’ nerd everyone idealizes and he once again showed us why we all love him. He tweeted this morning and shared a link of what he said is the latest SpaceX travel ad for the flight around the moon, in which the company is planning on taking two people onto the Moon. We were all pretty excited to look at what Musk had planned for this trip. However, the link did not exactly contain what we would have expected. It was a Space: 1999 – Destination Moonbase Alpha trailer!
Here is the latest SpaceX travel ad for the flight around the moon & into deep space. Maybe needs a few edits … https://t.co/mA8ZgutrbE

What does the lovable nerd say?
Heard the name before? All space nerds say ‘Aye!’ Well even if you haven’t let me tell you a bit about it. This show was aired in 1975 and is a British science fiction series. The show is about a series of events that take place when nuclear waste kept on one side of the moon by humans explodes and knocks the moon out of its orbit. The moon and 311 inhabitants of Alpha Moonbase then speed across space in an uncontrolled manner. This is when they encounter various space adventures. The question that comes to mind here is that what does the Space: 1999 show has to do with the SpaceX mission to get two people to the moon.
Well we came up with a few possibilities and explanations to Musk’s crazy Alpha Moonbase ad suggestion. There is a possibility that Musk is just being a nerd and showing what he expects from the space mission in the future. Maybe he is just showing off and telling people that this is what SpaceX will be able to achieve in the future. Another possibility is that this is Musk’s way of saying that our childhood’s wildest fantasies are about to come true. The nerd in me thinks that what if this is a hint? A hint that SpaceX plans on working towards a moonbase like the one in Space: 1999 in the future.
What do you think about this?
