Domino's Pizza Japan has just unveiled plans to construct a pizza restaurant on the Moon. Seriously. It's going to take 15 rocket launches and 14 billion dollars and will have dart boards and pool tables and delivery motorbikes and awesomeness.

In first grade, my teacher asked my class what our desired occupation was in the future. Several other friends and I answered "astronaut." None of us ever did come close. It's an uncertain time for American astronaut hopefuls.

In a weird, oblique way, that's exactly what Neil DaCosta and Sara Phillips are saying with their set of photos entitled Astronaut Suicides.
