This video is a great way to have students think about the question, “What would we do if we run out of water?” Blasting the moon is a controversial way of looking for water that some think is going too far. The video does not take a stance on the issue, but does present two different view points using four different sources. It is a great lead in to talk about what we need to do now to avoid drastic measures like this one.
