That’s right NASA is bombing a moon crater at or around 7:30 am est. Friday morning. There will be extensive live video coverage of the moon explosion on local networks, NASA TV and at  NASA.gov   You can also see the explosion from earth with a telescope. The mission Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite will send two parts of the spacecraft into the crater causing an impact that will send debris miles above the moon surface. Minutes later another spacecraft will fly through the plume gathering information whether water exists or not in ice pools within craters near the south pole.
