NASA shoots rocket into the moon
Posted October 11, 2009on:
On Friday October 9th NASA launched a 7 million dollar rocket at the moon. NASA’s clamming the strikes on the moon was a success, kicking up enough dust for scientists to determine whether or not there is water on the moon. They launched the rocket at the moon’s South Pole because this area of the moon does not get any sun and will be the most likely spot to find evidence of water. The NASA experts expected the plume cloud to rise up at least 16 kilometers after the rocket hit but they got nowhere near this number, but NASA officials are claming that this does not matter and they have sufficient data to find what they are looking for. It will be a while before all the data from the satellite can be analyzed to determine if there is water on the moon, according to LCROSS project manager Dan Andrews.
