But immediate NASA images of the crash produced no sign of the plumes, which were expected to rise six kilometers from the moon's surface, said John Marmie, LCROSS deputy project manager.
"Everyone was like, 'What's happening here?' " Marmie said. "But that doesn't mean we don't have good data there."
Observatories on Earth did confirm they saw plumes after the crashes, Marmie said.

Failure is always an option. That's science for you. If they discover something great, if they fail, they learn through that failure.

Why wouldn't there have been an HD camera on the spacecraft and why didnt we have a satellite focused on the moon that could see it?
I mean F!#$ even hubble could have taken a peak.
