I just watched the LCROSS Mission bomb the moon live on NASA TV. Wow! Pretty lame. They didn’t even show the explosion or the plume of dust that would show the evidence of water-ice on the lunar surface. I’m sure a better video will surface on youtube in an hour. Just a computer simulation and a camera getting closer and closer to the surface. No shot from space of a spectacular explosion of dust. No plume 30 miles high. They were too busy adjusting the infrared levels on their cameras. I hope a better video will surface. I’m sure one of the thousand independent obsevatories watching will upload one soon.
