Earth: Hell In A Handbasket

Strap yourself into the nearest imaginary rocket and let’s get the hell off this rock! The Japanese flung a very sophisticated piece of machinery toward the Moon—an orbiter. Hey! Don’t forget your cosmic passport! You’re going to need it when you levitate over the Mountains of Madness.

The SELENE Lunar Orbiter launched on October 14, 2007. The mission ended when the main orbiter was commanded to plummet toward the south of crater Gill, because all dignified orbiters go out with a bang, right? Exactly.

Press the play button and you’ll eventually see something very familiar during the first few minutes of footage. That something so happens to be Earth. The SELENE Orbiter floats above shadowed craters, and then a blue ornament rises above the lunar horizon. Yup. Earth. The place that contains all your hard earned memories, pets, friends, family, adversaries…all of that lovely shit crammed onto a single lump of space debris—home.


Perhaps we turned the place into a hellhole, but it’s our hellhole! History is set in stone. Literally. Viewing Earth from an alien perspective proves all our eggs reside in one BIG basket. All our dreams and nightmares. Sea levels rise while the atmosphere becomes saturated with gaseous car vomit. The alien perspective proves we’re going to Hell in a handbasket…a BIG handbasket.
