Mysterious Moon

Google's Moon Race is a most exciting, inspiring, promising and ten thousand more adjectives too many, piece of news and hope for the planet. Truly a giant step for mankind, this daring adventure of international intelligence is the perfect opportunity to unite humanity. Not to mention a great opportunity for a mystery story.

It seems people need something outside of themselves to cause them to unite and how much better to be united 'for' something rather than 'against' something - that unseen enemy that politics and culture are constantly creating in order to manipulate the masses and protect their status quo.

The race to the moon is truly a noble cause. I can feel Jules Verne coming alive.

Many, if not most mystery conversations focus on the criminal element - however a mystery does not need to be about a crime - except the name of this blog is Criminal Minds, not mysterious minds so perhaps I'm out of my league here. But criminal or not, Google's Moon Race is a fertile field for all sorts of shananigans.
