"With LRO, NASA will study our nearest celestial neighbor for at least two more years," said John Keller, LRO project scientist. "LRO continues to increase our understanding of the moon and its environment."
"As it turns there were several small surface changes found in the predicted area of the impact, the biggest and most distinctive was within 968 feet (295 meters) of the spot estimated by the Ladee operations team" said Mark Robinson, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) principal investigator from Arizona State University in Tempe
"Hey, incompetent, imperialism yank, can we offer you some of the fruits of mother Russia's communist experiment to make up for your own failures?"
...we know they can replicate that success," said Bill Gerstenmaier, associate administrator of NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Directorate. "Launching rockets is an incredibly difficult undertaking, and we learn from each success and each setback. Today's launch attempt will not deter us from our work to expand our already successful capability to launch cargo from American shores to the International Space Station."
