What if? was created by martinus

Randal Monroe is the creator of the XKCD online comic - some of you may have heard of it. Every Tuesday for the last few weeks he's been answering 'what if?' questions. Generally they're quite funny but always interesting. This week he took a look at "If every person on Earth aimed a laser pointer at the Moon at the same time, would it change color?".


Read for your amusement and interest. :)
