Dec. 18, 2012: NASA has named the site where twin gravity probes hit the Moon yesterday in honor of the late astronaut, Sally K. Ride, who was America's first woman in space and a member of the probes' mission team. On Dec. 14th, Ebb and Flow, the two spacecraft of NASA's GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory) mission, were commanded to descend into a lower orbit and target a mountain near the Moon's north pole. The formation-flying duo hit the lunar surface as planned at 5:28:51 p.m. EST and 5:29:21 p.m. EST on Dec. 17th at a speed of 3,760 mph. The location of the Sally K. Ride Impact Site is on the southern face of an approximately 1.5 mile-tall mountain near a crater named Goldschmidt... MORE

...Prima di precipitare sulla Luna le sonde gemelle hanno condotto un ultimo esperimento: 50 minuti prima dell’impatto hanno acceso i motori fino a consumare tutto il propellente rimasto nei serbatoi, in modo da fornir dati preziosi per validare i modelli utili a pianificare il fabbisogno di propellente per le future missioni di esplorazione....
