The announcement that the United Arab Emirates was starting its own space agency has sparked a bit of fancy about the possibilities for Arab life in space.Well-known Lebanese Karl Sharro, better known by his Twitter handle Karl reMarks, dredged up an old post where he imagined the results of a Lebanese colonization of the moon. Making the rounds of Twitter and Facebook Thursday, Sharro's visualization takes a look at what Lebanese would do on the moon: basically a mini Lebanon would emerge with its pros, cons and a falafel shop. While Sharro's flight of fancy may seem unlikely – it's worth considering, after all, there's hardly a country the Lebanese diaspora hasn't settled, why not the moon?
