NASA’s 308 - Coincidence?
« on: 11 Jan 2020, 10:22 pm »
Daedalus is a prominent crater located near the center of the far side of the Moon. The inner wall is terraced, and there is a cluster of central peaks on the relatively flat floor. Because of its location (shielded from radio emissions from the Earth), it has been proposed as the site of a future giant radio telescope, which would be scooped out of the crater itself, much like the Arecibo radio telescope, but on a vastly larger scale.


The crater is named after Daedalus of Greek myth. It is pictured in famous photographs taken by the Apollo 11 astronauts. In contemporary sources it was called "Crater 308"

shhhhh, there are no "coincidences" ! Next thing you'll be spilling the beans on our future model in Ebonized Walnut based on the monolith from 2001. :nono:

and begging HAL to open the pod bay doors to the shop.
He refuses until you surrender blu-prints to the monolith
