Go for Lunar Impact! NASA's LCROSS mission
sent a rocket into a hard landing on the moonon Oct. 9. The LCROSS target was the Cabeus crater near the lunar south pole. Two explosive, high-energy impacts created a plume of ejected material that specialized instruments were able to analyze on the spot.
NASA scientists expect to find water from the moon's ancient ice deposits among the chemical compounds released into the plume.
