[quote=nasa]# Targeting Accuracy Requirement Fri, 09 Oct 2009 08:0.5:12 AM GMT+0800 The LCROSS mission has a targeting accuracy requirement of a 12.4 mile (20km) circle, however the team has managed to greatly improve that accuracy to better than a 2.17 mile (3.5 km) circle. [/quote] more on the targeting
snip According to the above quote it's actually 5:12 AM on the West coast of the US. Wake up early and watch it.

Schweet. Too bad I will be at school..
If you go to the video link it says PM not AM, might want to change th quote a bit op.

6:15? God damn. I wanted to see it, too.
then agian there are many negitive sidefects that have not been rulled out....my opinion i think they should've tested the theory more

[QUOTE=devdog07;17737539]hahaha yeah arnt we lol the whole world will turn into a fishbowl sloshing around[/QUOTE] Do you know how many, much bigger, much faster, meteors hit it all the time? This is nothing for Ol' Luna.
* Live footage from spacecraft camera I want to see that shit smash down.
1 AM here now. I guess I better pull out my copy of MGS4 and do an all nighter
3:15 am? brb setting up telescope

[QUOTE=OvB;17737584]Do you know how many, much bigger, much faster, meteors hit it all the time? This is nothing for Ol' Luna.[/QUOTE] 1x Agree. My astronomy teacher said every once and a while, there is a meteor impact big enough on the moon you can see a visible flash, naked eye.

it is today in australia guys
[QUOTE=phill977;17737714]A flash, why would there be a flash?[/QUOTE] If the impact is big enough it will "spark" Think about it, all that rock slamming into the moon at ridiculously fast speeds, there's gunna be heat, compression, friction, and lots of energy. It's like a bullet ricocheting off of a hard surface and sparking. Google "impact flash" I couldn't find anything specific about it, but there are several articles that mention it.
4 hours and 26 minutes until impact. I love their recent live coverage of all kind of shit :dance:

That's no shit... It's a space rocket

[QUOTE=Victor Leferve;17738082]What time is impact for us brits?[/QUOTE] [url]http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LCROSS/main/index.html[/url] There's a countdown there.
[QUOTE=Victor Leferve;17738082]What time is impact for us brits?[/QUOTE] 3 hours and 40 minutes from the time I posted this, so just add three hours and 40 minutes to your current time
Cheers, guys. Yesterday the moon was spectacularly full, even druing the day, looked amazing through binoculars, hopefully its the same today..... Nope, cloudy as fuck. Damn.
