Today, September 13 2013 marks the 14th Anniversary of the day back in 1999 when Nuclear Waste stored on the far side of the moon exploded in a catastrophic accident. The resulting explosion sending the moon and all 311 inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, hurtling uncontrollably into space.

Or so it was in the Classic Gerry Anderson ITV series Space 1999.

One of my favorite shows from childhood.

 

Turns out you can watch the show on YouTube…

Here is the Pilot episode showing that horrible day back in 1999.
