Why Driving a Lamborghini to the Moon is not Advisable (at this time): a public service announcement from onG.Social
When Lambo? When Moon? We’ve all seen these questions in every single crypto Telegram chat room without fail and before this gets literal we want to make sure everyone knows the risks associated with taking a Lamborghini car to the moon.
“Astronomer Fred Hoyle was the first to point out that if you could drive a car upwards at 95km/h (60mph), it would only take about an hour to get into space.”-sciencefocus.com. That’s a pretty awesome fact but don’t start a kickstarter for a vertical freeway to the moon just yet, Fred didn’t mean it as travel advice.
Lamborghini was founded in 1963 when they also released their first car the 350 GTV
Apollo 15 mission took place on July 26th, 1971 which was the debut of the LRV or Lunar Rover Vehicle
As you can see from the dates above it’s not that NASA didn’t know about Lamborghinis and vice versa it’s just that it wasn’t a mission objective for NASA or represent a large target demographic for Lamborghini so neither party solicited a combined venture to our knowledge.
Ok so now it’s 2018 what’s the hold up? Well the almost complete lack of atmosphere on the moon makes it impossible to start a Lamborghini because all current models rely on oxygen. Additionally, the only model designed to be used off road is the “Urus” model and it is still oxygen dependent. As far as longevity goes, although the manufacturer’s warranty does not explicitly mention that it’s only to be used on planet Earth, it stands to reason that taking your Lamborghini to the moon would void it. A few more concerns would be breathing in general, extreme sunburn because no Lamborghinis have sufficient tint jobs to protect drivers from the sun minus the earth’s ozone, tires that aren’t designed for the exosphere of the moon, plus even if you could get the car started lunar dust would wreak havoc on your engine. On planet Earth Lamborghini’s rock but the moon isn’t really their thing right now.
Elon Musk did just send a Tesla Roadster to space onboard the Space X Falcon Heavy reusable rocket with Starman the robot taking it out for a float while playing David Bowie. Maximum style points for Elon Musk on that one! But still nobody was drift racing on the moon just yet, more like just drifting in space. But it’s one very cool step closer.
Since driving a Moon Lamborghini seems to be quite a way off it’s more important to take a good look at what the company you’re supporting is doing in the blockchain space. You know, mission control for the whole enchilada. If you really want to see growth in the token you’re holding you should really take an interest in what kind of projects that company is doing. Ask yourself a few questions to really gauge where they’re at. Are they completing things on their roadmap? How close are they to their timelines? Is the team active and securing strategic partnerships that will benefit the company? How solid do you feel about their idea in general? The answers to these questions will help you to gauge whether or not they’re a good match for you.
So, we’ve established that it’s not a good idea to take your Lamborghini to the moon at this time but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be really excited about your cryptos. Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Technology are the way of the future and if you’re reading this you’re probably a big fan of both. We all need to remember that we’re all still early adopters in the grand scheme of things which is an incredible place to be! Seeing the major companies that have joined all of us on this adventure is an incredible indicator that we’re all onto something special.
We’re all collectively on a rocket ship that’s blasting off so let’s enjoy the ride! Who knows maybe Lamborghini will release a “Lamborghini LRV” or maybe Elon Musk will release a “Tesla Moonster” on his way to Mars, but what we do know is that we should all kick back and enjoy the cryptosphere!!
