The LRO set to launch soon will be a LONG-TERM mission. Slelene COULD
have been one using ion engines and a more proper orbit, or maybe a
few million more yen$. To intentionally build our robots to fail is a
re-hashing and re-manufacturing 'myth' that we can't build ANYTHING to
last longer than 6 months. I reject that outright. Our engineers
need to think and use long lasting material that stands the rigors of
space, and we MUST begin my SHARING what DARPA knows with Academic
Scientists. Otherwise we WILL be screwed when we cross the plane of
the Milky Way Galaxy in 3 years. Earth will look like Mars.

Bah...even the Soviets won't OPENLY at east put a Lunar Orbiter up, I
quess we should be lucky that NASA is putting one up AFTER the X-37B
test flight.

I still think "Marvin The Martian" is "Space Bombardment Force" under a
new name.
The whole argument style is _very_ similar.
BTW, although far crazier than rhw007, Brad Guth - the very platinum
meter bar of posting craziness, kept somewhere in Geneva in a
nitrogen-filled padded vault - also _spells_ a lot better than rhw007.

Given the odds, I expect they'd all go out and buy lottery tickets the next
day.

A) the odds of hitting a particular spot on a smooth sphere of that size is
EXTREMELY small.

B) Now, figure the odds of impacting the plain of Mare Tranquillitatis and
NOT hitting a peak on the way is even smaller.

You mean the Apollo 11 impact site. If there were a landing sire, as
such there should have be a number of bright and very shiny items that
would have made it easy for the Apollo mission to have recorded a very
bright 10 meter pixel that marked the exact spot, or as of the last 4
months at 50 km would have made that a 5 meter pixel.

The Soviets also lost all of their R&D pertaining to fly-by-rocket
landers, Guess if you were a rocket scientist of that era, being
unable to document whatever prototypes and their terrestrial fly-by-
rocket testing was the exact same problem that our DARPA and NASA had.
