It is pretty normal to smash a probe into whatever it is supposed to watch when it is done its job, less orbital crap that way.

I have to wonder what connotation people pick up by 'controlled crash' always being in quotations... Though I suppose 'intentional crash' would be more accurate, it is not like they could abort the crash at the last minute.

And Hanin find oil in space? LOL. By the time humans get to that point fossil fuels would be as ancient as using whale oil is today.

If anything we will get that hydrogen isotope from the moon for fusion reactors.

[citation][nom]article[/nom]...said JAXA spokesman Shinichi Sobue said...[/citation]say what?

it's funny you commented about the oil in space kami3k - my first thought was oil on the moon? lol - though I re-read his comment and I figured he could have meant like finding another planet with life on it so I let it slide. definitely right on that not being soon though.

"The crash [...] happened on the unlit, dark side of the Moon" (from the linked website)
What kind of an idiot thinks there is an "unlit, dark side of the moon".

[citation][nom]lamorpa[/nom]There is a term for people who make xenophobic comments: bigots. Since when is it considered funny?[/citation]

Lighten up, not like he is burning a cross in Asian peoples' yards or something. Maybe Asian people have never had anyone tell them that they can't drive. Maybe some Asians will read this thread and the world will be safer place for all drivers.

It is not for you to decide what others find offensive. Perhaps non-Asians will read this thread and the world will be a more tolerant and respectful place for all readers. See, that didn't feel too good, did it?

Why do they keep "crashing" stuff so close to earth, why not leave it on a trajectory towards the sun or something so it doesn't litter up our back yard.

Unless it doesn't have enough power to escape earths gravitational pull and enter the suns, but I don't know how much power that take.

I find young female blonde caucasions the worst drivers.
Or anyone on a cell phone...

It does make sense, but I agree that it should be thrown into the sun or something. Galactic littering...
