This is a gorgeous video of NASA’s two spacecraft’s Ebb and Flow spending a few moments staring at the moon before it crashes right into it. The reason why they are crashing into the moon is because they were running out of fuel and it’s much safer to crash them rather than leave them floating in space unattended. The goal of the GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory) was to use high-quality gravitational field mapping of the Moon to determine its interior structure. Without further a due here are the parting moon shots from the GRAIL mission. Enjoy!
