Kamikaze Probes to Smash into Lunar Mountain


Recommended Posts



A pair of robotic space probes circling the moon to reveal what is inside will make suicidal plunges to the lunar surface next week, a planned -- albeit dramatic -- finale to a mission that is giving scientists new insights into how the solar system evolved.


The Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, or GRAIL, mission will come to an end at 5:28 p.m. EST Monday (Dec. 17) when the twin spacecraft crash into a mountain near the moon's north pole after nearly a year in lunar orbit.

Is this the event that leads to the moon being pushed out of orbit and ona collision course with Earth that ends up in the destruction of Earth on the 21st? Or is it going to be faked to make us think they have done it when in fact they have crashed into a quarry just outside Acrington Stanley? :lol:
