This really shouldn't be surprising to anybody; NASA has done a lot of studies over the years for "What if... ?" scenarios and this is just one more. What would be interesting to find out would be the exact conditions of the scenarios that NASA provided. If it was just an open-ended conversation then that would be no fun but if it was along then the lines of "What if we found something on the moon during an Apollo mission that we've been hiding from the public and it can not have been put there by known humans?" Now *that* would be interesting. :D
