Making Love On The Moon

Only 12 people have ever walked on the moon. These moon walks were all for the purpose of exploration and there certainly wasn’t any dating, dining, or love making on the moon. So, if this is the case, how is there a new movie coming out, based on true events, which is about making love on the moon?

Ben Mezrich is currently one of the most popular writers in the world. He first became well known when he published Bringing Down the House, which was a story about MIT Students who figured out a way to count cards and make a ton of money playing blackjack in Vegas. The book was later turned into a movie that was called 21. Next, Ben wrote the book which the movie “The Social Network” was based on – which highlights the story of how Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook from his dorm room at Harvard. Ben’s latest project, may turn out to be more popular and thrilling than his previous successes.

Ben Mezrich is going to tell the story of a NASA trainee who made love on the moon. This person is named Thad Roberts, and while he never actually visited the moon, he stole 17 pounds of Moon Rocks to impress his girlfriend. Thad then laid out the moon rocks on his bed so that his girlfriend and himself could make love on the moon. Thad then continued to get himself in deeper trouble when he tried to sell the moon rock on the black market to a Belgium rock collector. This rock collector was suspicious and he then contacted the FBI. Remember, moon rock is extremely rare and thus, extremely valuable. It is estimate that the Rocks that Thad stole were worth over $20 million. Thus, when federal investigators learned about what Thad had done – they arrested him and he was sentenced to 8 years in federal prison.

The story has many Twists and turns. And what makes it even more exciting is that Thad is not your everyday criminal. He wanted to impress his girlfriend, and then make money for himself, and the escapade took him from a high profile internship at NASA to behind the bars of a federal prison.

When Thad left prison, he got in touch with Mezrich, and the result is going to be an extremely entertaining movie. And with NASA recently closing the shuttle program, and no planned manned moon missions in sight, the value and intrigue behind moon rock is only going to go higher and higher. This movie will make many of us want to see and get our hands on moon rock, even more.

Thad is clearly an intelligent person who went down the wrong path and derailed his life. Internships at NASA are very difficult to get, and they allow you to learn about mythical things such as the moon, in an entirely different way. Now that Thad is out of prison, this movie will hopefully allow his story to be told once and for all, so that Thad can move on with his life and get it back on track.
