The ever serious scientists, researchers and astronauts of NASA have decided they’ve had enough with the jokes, the name-calling and being labeled as nerds. To combat the problem, NASA has decided to expand on the sports in space program initiated by Alan Shepard’s moon golfing. On Thanksgiving, Russian cosmonaut, Mikhail Tyurin, has been cleared to drive golf balls off the International Space Station. NASA employees don’t intend to stop at using the ISS as a driving range. Not only has the suggestion been made to rename the moon as the X-Moon, NASA has proposed turning the moon into a site for the X-Games. Had NASA become hip earlier, perhaps Apollo 13’s Jim Lovell would have uttered, "Dudes, our spaceship is like sooooo broken."
