Crash & Splash: NASA Probes to Dash Toward Moon
The shepherding spacecraft will watch the plume of gas and dust rise about 3.7 miles high (6 km), "shaped kind of like an upside-down lampshade," Colaprete said. Matter could even be knocked up 30 miles (50 km) or more, he added, and the flash might be visible through amateur-class telescopes with apertures as small as 10 to 12 inches.
The shepherding spacecraft will then fly through the plume the Centaur kicks up, using its five cameras and three spectrometers working in the visible, near-infrared, and mid-infrared wavelengths to scan for water or other compounds. An onboard photometer will also very quickly and precisely measure the faint flash of the impact itself, which in a few hundred milliseconds can reveal how far the rocket penetrated, how strong the lunar matter was, and even if water escaped.
