This is interesting.

But initial photos show that the moon didn't give the reaction to the double jabs that NASA expected.

It say's photos of the double impact, How did they get photos of the second impact? Did it take pictures of itself?

In all seriousness though, this story isnít really being paid much attention to today, as usual a smoke screen has been deployed to divert attention away from what the shadow Government is up to.

Think about it! The Nobel Peace Prize, What takes most an entire lifetime to achieve, it took our president just a few months. Something just aint stirring the koolaid Ace!

here's the latest and greatest Wink   Now the mission was a success!

MEDIA ADVISORY : 09-131AR  NASA Spacecraft Impacts Lunar Crater in Search for Water Ice   

MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. -- NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS, created twin impacts on the moon's surface early Friday in a search for water ice. Scientists will analyze data from the spacecraft's instruments to assess whether water ice is present.

The satellite traveled 5.6 million miles during an historic 113-day mission that ended in the Cabeus crater, a permanently shadowed region near the moon's south pole. The spacecraft was launched June 18 as a companion mission to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

"The LCROSS science instruments worked exceedingly well and returned a wealth of data that will greatly improve our understanding of our closest celestial neighbor," said Anthony Colaprete, LCROSS principal investigator and project scientist at NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif. "The team is excited to dive into data."

In preparation for impact, LCROSS and its spent Centaur upper stage rocket separated about 54,000 miles above the surface of the moon on Thursday at approximately 6:50 p.m. PDT.

Moving at a speed of more than 1.5 miles per second, the Centaur hit the lunar surface shortly after 4:31 a.m. Oct. 9, creating an impact that instruments aboard LCROSS observed for approximately four minutes. LCROSS then impacted the surface at approximately 4:36 a.m.

"This is a great day for science and exploration," said Doug Cooke, associate administrator for the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "The LCROSS data should prove to be an impressive addition to the tremendous leaps in knowledge about the moon that have been achieved in recent weeks. I want to congratulate the LCROSS team for their tremendous achievement in development of this low cost spacecraft and for their perseverance through a number of difficult technical and operational challenges."‪

Other observatories reported capturing both impacts. The data will be shared with the LCROSS science team for analysis. The LCROSS team expects it to take several weeks of analysis before it can make a definitive assessment of the presence or absence of water ice.

"I am very proud of the success of this LCROSS mission team," said Daniel Andrews, LCROSS project manager at Ames. "Whenever this team would hit a roadblock, it conceived a clever work-around allowing us to push forward with a successful mission."

The images and video collected by the amateur astronomer community and the public also will be used to enhance our knowledge about the moon.

"One of the early goals of the mission was to get as many people to look at the LCROSS impacts in as many ways possible, and we succeeded," said Jennifer Heldmann, Ames' coordinator of the LCROSS observation campaign. "The amount of corroborated information that can be pulled out of this one event is fascinating."

"It has been an incredible journey since LCROSS was selected in April 2006," said Andrews. "The LCROSS Project faced a very ambitious schedule and an uncommonly small budget for a mission of this size. LCROSS could be a model for how small robotic missions are executed. This is truly big science on a small budget."

Here's the official footage, this is the same that I saw on the NASA sight.

This is the Sept 11th 2009 briefing for the mission.

The Selenites probably launched an intercept craft or shot it out of it's decent.

If the Selenites crashed stuff in Earth's atmosphere the Earth governments would be pretty pissed too.

I'm going to be interested to see if any armatures really did get photos or footage of the impact.

I think this whole blowing the moon a new one, was senseless. What NASA should of done is directed the lunacy explosion towards the afghan dried out mountain terrain and see what comes flying out?

Computerworld - In the days leading up to NASA's crashing of two halves of a space probe into the moon, doubters turned to the Internet to express fears that the lunar bombing would have negative effects on the Earth.
Scientists and astronomers were quick to step forward to refute any rumors and quell concerns, but rumors are still circulating online.
In a quest to find out if there's water on the moon, NASA sent two separated halves of a spacecraft crashing into a permanently dark crater on the south pole of the moon this morning. The crashes were meant to send up a huge debris plume that could be measured and analyzed for evidence of water ice hiding in the cold, dark crater.
With NASA still hopeful to one day create a viable human outpost on the moon, it would be helpful for anyone there to find water rather than haul it up from Earth.
But detractors were quick to post online warnings about possible negative effects of the experiment.

A permanently dark crater?  And we were supposed to see this impact how?  

There's just too much that isn't adding up here, too many contradictions.
