NASA to play demolition derby with moon, moon likely to win12/15/2012
Is this NASA meets Jackass? The space agency will deliberately crash two probes into the moon on Monday, hitting the rim of a lunar crater at over 3,000mph. The space nerds in Houston say this isn’t a destructive prank, but the safest way to dispose of the Ebb and Flow probes, which are almost out of fuel and will hit the moon’s surface eventually anyway. The controlled crash will ensure no debris hits the Apollo landing sites and other areas of historical importance on the lunar surface. Suspiciously, NASA has neither confirmed or denied that Wee Man is onboard either probe. [Source]
