Shoot the Moon! A Moon-Shaking, Crash-Landing Search for Water (Webcast)
Date: October 9, 2009
Running Time: 00:33:08

Is water ice present or absent in a crater near the moon's south pole? NASA’s Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission is seeking a definitive answer. Join Exploratorium staff for a special Webcast featuring live coverage of LCROSS crashing into the moon! Our team will be broadcasting live from the 36" Refractor Telescope at Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton, where we’ll watch the impact and investigate how this intentional crash could reveal the existence of water ice.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
