NASA “No-Fly” Zone on the Moon

Brilliant idea! When tourism hits the moon and all the lookie loo’s head to space and beyond, NASA will need to “protect” their landing areas.

The space agency released guidelines this summer on how they would “protect” the lunar landing sites and artifacts. They call for a 1,200-acre “no-fly” zone around the first landing site by Apollo 11 and the final one by Apollo 17. Under those guidelines, tourists could only walk within 82 yards of the Apollo 11 landing site where Neil Armstrong first took “one small step for man,” on July 20, 1969.

Seriously?! Are there going to be moon rangers up there handing out tickets? 82 yards and not a yard closer!
