MYFOX NATIONAL) - NASA is preparing to bomb the moon and you can watch if you get up early.

The space agency said it will slam two spacecraft into the moon at 7:30 a.m. EDT Friday in an effort to find water on the moon.

A spacecraft, called the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS, will break into two parts and hit the moon a few minutes apart. First the Centaur upper stage rocket will hit the lunar crater Cabeus near the southern pole, sending a plume of debris about 6 miles above the moon. LCROSS then will fly through the debris, collecting and analyzing the debris, searching for signs of water ice before slamming into the moon at 5,000 miles per hour.

Amateur astronomers with the right equipment will be able to see the event from Earth, or you could just watch it on TV.

NASA is planning a live broadcast for the LCROSS impacts starting at 6:15 a.m. EDT, 3:15 a.m. PDT, Oct. 9, on NASA TV and will stream the event live at www.nasa.gov/ntv .

Not everybody thinks bombing the moon is a good idea, however.

Some believe it is actually a space-based weapons test , and Lara Gardner, a writer from Portland, Maine, has started a blog called Do Not Bomb the Moon . She doesn't have any facts to back it up, but she says it is just wrong.


All I have to say is that this is wrong. The moon isn't just some lab rat for the US to test their weapons on. I've had enough of this country and it's war mongering, trying to destroy the moon is crossing a line. Why don't they quit wasting money "looking for water" on the moon and spend money fixing the climate and water problems here on Earth?

so say they find water on the moon...which they wouldent because lack of gravity would cause the rock to be very moist and rainy...then what??

Then they know that their space weapons work and can waste more money in their constant struggle to be king of the hill. They can continue their search for oil and money while people die of hunger and thirst and we slowly destroy our planet.

Flippy forgot to use a dodgy....I hope.

Except for pockets of water ice, the moisture in Lunar rock & soil is contained at a molecular level. Its a result of a chemical reaction between free hydrogen atoms in the solar wind & oxidizing chemicals found in the rock.

Honestly, I have to say this is freaking retarded. Why? Sure, they may FIND water on the moon by doing this, but they're also going to contaminate it with toxic rocket fuel, metals, etc. That's pure genius: in searching for water they also ruin it.

Hardly. That would be like saying that we ruined the Pacific Ocean when we let the Apollo splash down. Were talking about something almost the size of a planet being hit with something the size of a small car. Contamination would be so minimal as to be practically non-existent.

This will bring about the Zombie apocalypse.
The explosion will release radiation from inside of the moon, that was locked inside millenia ago by Oderus Urungus.
This radiation will reanimate the dead. In the year 2012, the last humans will die off, thus presenting the end of the Earth.
After December 21, 2012, the Earth will be a zombie wasteland.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

That's right everyone. Earth First!


We can strip mine and poison the other planets later.

That's all well and good, except we don't now how much is there, or in how wide an area. And it doesn't take much hydrazine (the propellant in the thrusters) to contaminate a LOT of water. That stuff is very toxic and corrosive. And keep in mind the Apollo stages burned up in the atmosphere, and the capsule had its exterior scoured by flame. And, with the exception of one capsule, all were recovered (that capsule has since been recovered). The Space Shuttle tank only contains hydrogen fuel, too. Most of the crap that crashes into the ocean is basically inert by the time it hits. That's not true ofthe moon, since there is no atmosphere.

Not entirely so. The main engines use a hydrogen compound, but the boosters use a solid fuel core of powdered aluminum/iron oxide (for reaction mass).
My point is that the amount of contamination is too small to effect the basic premise of the test. The pollutants are known and recognized, and no doubt their presence is accounted for. But these tests (they've already done several) seem to show far more water molecules than anyone expected. Hence the more thorough study that being done now.
If we as a species are ever going to seriously consider a permanent presence on the moon (and that a completely different argument) then we have to know exactly what we have to work with up there...right down to the last molecule...in terms of available resources. Even a few parts per million of the right material can be critical. Better to study all we can now to avoid horrible mistakes later. Impact testing is a relatively cheap, well understood method for gathering this kind of data.

ummm.....does it really matter if we contaminate it....?


i mean......its not like theres really anything up there to contaminate.....a rock....some dust.....dats about it.

plus, after all the space missions from every country.....the amount of debris in space/ moon is already up there......soo.....i really dont see the big deal.

hell....no one complains when we smashed stuff into jupiter, saturn, mars, commets, and all the other stuff up there......so whats the big deal with the moon?

Out of curiosity, if they find water, what can they do with it?

I don't object to the idea, but I'm curious what they hope to achieve besides "look, water."
