NASA Crashes Into Moon…On Purpose

Filed under: Uncategorized — loudounlady @ 10:59 pm

Early Friday morning, NASA scientists crashed two unmanned spacecrafts into the Moon. The purpose, to stir up moondust and see if there is any remnants of water particles. This would allow scientists to gain a better understanding of the Earth’s and Moon’s history.

As of right now, the results are inconclusive but the scientists have been optimistic the incident will produce some scienfitic results.

The only disappointment in all this.

No fireworks.

Prior to the spacecrafts impact landing, scientists predicted individuals with advanced enough telescopes would be able to see the impact. However, the crash produced minimal cosmetic fireworks.

Lets just hope the information gathered from this incident isn’t as disappointing as the crash.
