NASA will bomb the Moon on October 11!
I think this is a news worth posting and informing all fellow UE practicioners.
As the title says, NASA plans to bomb the Moon in order to "see if there is water under its surface".
This decision comes in a strange moment when many countries are preparing for missions to the Moon.
The missile is already sent, it should reach the Moon on October 11th and it should create dust clouds visible even from Earth.
In my daily transfers I will also include the Moon from now on,and if anyone has other suggestions,please share.
For more info,just google "NASA bombing the Moon", or search it on YouTube.
NASA Puzzles Over 'Invisible' Moon Impact
October 9, 2009 http://www.newscientist.com/article/...on-impact.html
In the final minutes of its plunge toward the moon, NASA's LCROSS spacecraft spotted the brief infrared flash of a rocket booster hitting the lunar surface just ahead of it – and it even saw heat from the crater formed by the impact. But scientists remain puzzled about why the event did not seem to generate a visible plume of debris as expected.
Yet, immediately after the scheduled impact time, there was no obvious sign of the spectacular explosion that many were expecting.
A worst-case scenario would have occurred if the rocket hit bedrock rather than loose, gravelly soil.
