Good find, what amazing technology.


Polar Night would conduct a highly detailed remote sensing survey of the poles to refine our understanding of the temperatures and distribution of hydrogen, then directly sample the polar ice with three hard-landing probes," Professor Paul Lucey of the University of Hawaii told BBC News Online.

Sounds like they are excivating for the lunar base.

What kind of insturments could survive this?
Nano?



"The instruments were recently shock tested in the New Mexico desert by firing them at high speed into two metres (six feet) of plywood, where they experienced 1,200 Gs of shock and worked perfectly afterwards."

No, just special equipment with extraordinary quality.

I was hoping someone would "click" to it, but no cigar...
These "bunker-busting" missiles have nothing to do with finding water ice. Nothing.
If anybody remembers the early Lunar programmes of the USSR/USA, you will remember that EVERY time a probe was crashed into the Lunar surface, the Moon RANG "like a bell" for up to an hour after impact.
Make of that what you will...
