I lol'd when the guy in the NASA centre was looking for a hi-five and the other guy just looked at him and walked right past him.

Hay the moon has been double dealing on us. We expected to find more moon dust when Apollo landed there. So where did it go? Obviously they found black market sells of their moon dust made more money, so we've been shorted. This is intolerable! We HAD to make an example of them so none of the other planets will double cross us. I mean if we're willing to do this to our own moon just imagine what well do to a planet that does us dirty.

NASA is not bombing the moon, this is like the 10th spacecraft that has been slammed into the moon after it's mission was complete.

I think its more to do with NASA dreaming up something to stop their funds being depleted for doing diddly squat the last 40 years.

US bombs moon, Obama wins (http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2009/10/68500680/1) Nobel Peace Prize.

Coincidence?

The question is where we aiming at the Watcher or the Inhumans...

Doers anyone know why these two particular craft were slammed into the moon? (Hint, I did an animation about a few years ago...)

Supposedly to find water vapour...although how water vapour is going to survive an explosion is slightly beyond me but that's what they say.

Here's one of the first pics of the first craft hitting the moon

The impact plume is expected to spray a mixture of regolith and water crystals a few miles above the lunar surface. It's not an explosion, just a high velocity impact.

Anybody else run into that weird meme, "We shouldn't be doing that up in space while there are problems here on Earth!"

It's as if that particular type of research shouldn't be done until we've solved all human problems in the whole world. No one says we shouldn't research medicine because there are starving people, or we shouldn't invent new friggin phones because there are still wars.

The person next to me at work said something about shooting the moon and how we shouldn't do that because of problems here. Well, we work at a scientific instrument company. Our jobs depend on people doing research. But that type of research is bad? We shouldn't look to expand our possible living environments unless we don't need to any more?

Go figure.

BTW, I do hope they find water up there.

I would like to see a moon base sometime in this lifetime. Having water up there already might make that happen much faster.

Ha. That strip is so true. Now that there is irrefutable proof that the lander is still parked on the lunar surface the "truthers" can focus their delusions on debunking 911.

It depends on the energy of the impact, and this is related to the velocity and mass of the probe. When Shomaker-Levy 9 hit Jupiter, many scientists (me included) analized those images.

Alright everybody! The truth is that thing was aimed at the North Pole to wipe out Santa Clause as retribution for running over grandma and we missed.

We missed so badly a cover-story had to be invented to save face. I mean common! This makes missing the barn when your standing inside it with the doors closed, look like expert marksmanship.
