The Lunar Crater Observation and Remote Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission will impact into the lunar polar region on October 9th. The panelists, consisting of the mission Principle Investigator and two Science Co-Investigators, will discuss the first results obtained from the cameras and spectrometers aboard the shepherding spacecraft, as well as pictures of the impact taken around the world and in space by the Hubble Space Telescope. Will the LCROSS mission detect water in the lunar regolith? Did the mission work as planned? The panel will let us know.
