I usually take snapshots, but I'm also at work and don't have the graphics programs. I'll try however to do the best I can from here.

I see they are targeting an individual molecule...

If that's a water molecule is that such a bad thing?

The target molecule will probably be destroyed. Perhaps they're hoping to detect the water molecules adjacent to that one? tongue.gif

Moon!

Don't know if it was the Moon imaged by the previous flyby or a live downlink. Too noisy here.

All instruments are operating nominally, that's great news, great chance of getting data!

Sounded live to me. the scientist being interviewed was quite emotional when asked his feeling at the time it was shown. He said he was feeling [many] emotions at the same time.

Yes, this is the Moon seen by LCROSS in real time!

Yet another screenshot coming. Unfortunately I won't be able to combine them all - no graphics programs here.
