Yes we're country folk, but we're also tired of waiting for NASA so we launched our own Lunar Mission.

LOL
I still laugh about NASA not knowing how this guy in the UK got such great orbital shots a year ago. Sending up a Weather balloon. No imagination these "professionals" .

And here for a sec I thought some billionaires may have convened in Maine to joint fund a moonshot. You know - a flyby with a GOPRO on the sat.

Sigh.
