Mar 30, 2010: Impact Crater

Apollo-13, you know the one... you've seen the movie... probably the greatest drama played out in space, and I'll include the first moon landing in that opinion.
Anyway, the first two stages the Saturn-V rocket that pushed that mission into space fell back to Earth, but the third stage crashed into the Moon making a big crater... this crater.

The crater image above is from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, and shows the Apollo 13 booster impact. The crater itself is a few dozen meters across, and the material ejected forms a blanket around it for many meters more. The bright material indicates this is a fresh crater; note how gray the more distant undisturbed material around the crater is.

Wow that really made an impact.

I hope it didn't hurt any Lunar endangered species by causing Lunar warming!

That's really pretty cool. Ancient history at this point, but quite interesting.

Reminds me of this guy.

Making it was ancient history, but the photograph isn't. Nobody had ever seen it, although the impact was recorded by the instruments Apollo 12 left there.

Didn't you post that same picture in the Dweller NSFW thread, Bruce?

Reaffirms my contention that there is a Simpson's quote for all of life’s experiences.

"This is the most exciting thing I've seen since Halley's comet collided with the moon." Homer Simpson

If we're not supposed to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?!
