(CNN) -- The second of two new research probes successfully entered the moon's orbit Sunday afternoon, a day after its companion, NASA announced.
The unmanned Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory-B (GRAIL-B) fired its main engines at 5:05 p.m. and slipped into lunar orbit 39 minutes later, controllers at the space agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory reported. Its companion GRAIL-A probe arrived on Saturday.

Very fascinating stuff, hopefully we'll be able to better understand the history and make up of the moon. Probably will find some groundbreaking details during this project. What are your thoughts ATS members?

I think it's weird that there's a 'no-fly zone' on the moon, and from some of the chatter here on ATS' there's a tenant up there that probably doesn't want us up there meddling around.
will be interesting to see what they find...

now then, I wonder what they are really up to?

its supposed to be for detailing gravity of the moon and how it got there in the first place, but seeing how that isn't something you need "2" probes to do, i suspect a more secretive nature of the project. Either way we won't hear about anything they find for years after the discovery, gotta love the government.

One of the tenants may have gone past their designated areas and it is time for a closer look see as to how far they have wandered off the ranch .

No fly zone , sure suggest something other than just that .

i can't help but imagine a "Grey Alien" joyriding on a stolen Lunar Rover

Stolen? I see it rather abandoned, we did not go to the moon for decades haha.

Looked it up and what I found was a very reasonable non-binding recommendation for preserving the Apollo landing sites and other historical artifacts on the moon by restricting travel to within 75 to 225 meters. Close enough to see, far enough to avoid trampling all over the foot trails and other permanent marks left by the astronauts.

They may just pick it up and say get this tin can out of our domain . If you have an issue with that then , we will send someone right over and deal with it in our own special way .

then they'd return to earth and all of a sudden we have stories like the return of christ and other return stories from religions happening because of us in space leading them back here. i can see a future book deal in this for us.

Book deal sounds nice , I can surely fill in some blanks and pokes some holes into other things .


Imo , from what I have gathered with dealing with TPTB . They used satellites to find more under the sand in Egypt , and they will be doing this very thing on the moon . Gravitational mumbo jumbo is part of what they will be doing .

no doubt, my guess is that they'll find remains of structures or unnatural formations on or under the moon, not necessarily in the sense that they were put there, but maybe formed when the moon was a part of something else before becoming the moon

They will find things but censor again what they choose to let the public see . Have touched on this previously elsewhere . The moon not being a national security risk or is it from what is already known from there being altered images .

i've been trying to find a few good videos about the structures on our moon, mars' moon phobos, and mars itself, most videos are too short and i'm looking for some good decent length films to occupy my time.

The only thing that I can offer here is short clips and some oddities found through some of my postings .

thanks hunter for the info. I didn't know this was what it was for.
reasonable request if it's the real reason for the no-fly zone.
thanks for the heads up.

whats very interesting is this mission is also an attempt to gain a detailed understanding of whats under the surface of the moon.....

I'm sure it will be released to the public "quick smart" just got to let us airbrush out the tunnels....
