People are uncertain whether Australia actually named its space programme ARSE

A moon of a different kind.

LATE LAST NIGHT, a website for Australian Research and Space Exploration (ARSE) was launched.


Seems legit, right?

You can even get – wait for it – ARSE merchandise.


An arse shirt, if you will.

Other than the acronym, there’s literally nothing to suggest this site isn’t legit — besides the fact the website isn’t a ‘’ address. It was just announced three days ago that the continent would be launching it’s own space agency.

The global space industry is growing rapidly and it’s crucial that Australia is part of this growth,” acting Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science Minister Michaelia Cash said in a statement.

Right on! Isn’t it about time Australia got the ARSE?

Fake news or not, it sure is more memorable than NASA.
