Splat!

Was that the sound of LCROSS bombing the moon?

Or perhaps the divining rod braking in two?

You get what you pay for.

Not sure what your point is. Are you saying:
a) Ha Ha! You screwed up!
or
b) Nasa should have spent more on this mission.

b - seems out of line with your previous opinions

if a, please provide a link to any substantive accomplishment of your own. Otherwise you're just chattering from the peanut gallery.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

You folks really do want NASA to fail don't you? Hope it make you feel good - it certainly makes you look small.

the impact still happened

with instruments looking at it no less

so the science experiment happened, and the knowledge will follow

no visible dust cloud just represents our poor ability to predict the dust cloud !

Constellation HAS failed. You need to get out of your la la la denial land and admit the problem, and then start working some credible solutions.

Quoting Theodore Roosevelt isn't an accomplishment of your own either.

Here, Here - skor said it right. I'm leaving this sight for good - these folks (rocketman in the fore front) are just a bunch of potshot artists. Those who can't do - well, they just find fault.

I think the critics of critics on this site (learn to spell anon) must not really be paying attention in the first place. Rocket Man is a reporter, not a critic. If you want to put your head in the sand and ignore the problems, then failure is all you should expect. However, if you want to make things better, go fix the problems as they are reported.

With all of the robotic capability at our disposal, crashing two pieces of machinery into a body that we have repeatedly been able to land on, gather samples from and take countless images of, ask the question 'is the best effort that NASA can muster?'

What skor should remember is that lies are almost impossible to suppress. They will bubble to the top sooner or later. All that rocketman is doing is providing a venue through which they can see the light of day.

The public needs to be aware of the lenths to which NASA will go to suppress anything but 'their' truth. They will destroy careers, they will get people fired and a host of other actions will be taken against anyone that they feel is a threat. If you disagree, you must flee!

It combines to make the fictional movie 'Capricorn 1' take on a whole new light!
