Last month ISRO announced that the country’s first unmanned lunar mission Chandrayaan-I found evidence of water on the moon.
Later today NASA is going to bomb the moon!
Scientists will see two spacecraft slamming into the moon’s south pole at 9,000 kmph kicking up a 10-km-high shower of debris that National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) hopes will confirm the presence of enough water necessary to supply future visits by astronauts. Amateur astronomers in parts of the world may be able to view the impact through a telescope; for everyone else, the crash will be broadcast live on the Nasa website along with early pictures of the lunar dust cloud during the dramatic mission. Within an hour of the impact, scientists will know whether water was hiding there or not.
Will someone make a song titled The Day They Bombed The Moon? And why does this remind me of the catestrophic destruction of the Klingon moon Praxis in Star Trek VI : The Undiscovered Country?
