This has been in the pipeline for some time, it's not the first time I've heard of this. As far as I understand it they are going to fire a projectile into the moon, about the size of a washing machine, and then another craft will capute data of what is thrown out into the atmosphere.
Official story is that they want to test for water, although I'm not sure many on here will believe that! Either way, the launch is today so hold on to your hats, should be interesting to see what comes back!

God created the Earth as a playground for humans. We have peace, violence, rubbish and treasures. But we're prohitbited to destroy or harm other planets.
Don't forget the angels are watching. God is always ready to call it game over for any "out of this world" sinners.

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter launched at 5:32 p.m. EDT aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The satellite will relay more information about the lunar environment than any other previous mission to the moon.
The orbiter, known as LRO, separated from the Atlas V rocket carrying it and a companion mission, the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite. The LCROSS handoff is expected to occur in about two hours and 10 minutes
