Fly me to the moon

Yesterday NASA's mission to the moon was successfully accomplished. We eagerly watched the footage from the lunar surface, anxious to catch the first glimpse of the anticipated huge plume of dust. Unfortunately, particularly for live television, nothing materialised.

Doubtless there will be a satisfying amount of valuable information to keep the scientists busy. We shall find out in due course but as a live event it was a bit of a damp squib.

Today Barry caught an interesting lunar image of his own. 'Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars'

  1. That is a really cool shot of the moon. I watched the whole thing live at nasa.gov and was a bit disappointed also. Oh well maybe they will be able to figure out if there is any water up there.

  2. Thank you Kathy. I'm sure we'll know sooner or later if there is or ever has been water on the moon. Patience . . . ;-)
