Slide 1: To find water, NASA 'bombs' the moon Photo Credits-http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_n5utq1JjLtc/SFdfQp0ql6I/AAAAAAAAADA/6zQCEtMQ8Ak/s400/nasa_logo.jpg Slide 2: Photo Credits-http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/10/09/article-1218768-06C32598000005DC-326_634x444.jpg The US space agency, NASA, has crashed a rocket into a crater on the south pole of the moon in hopes of detecting water. This is the first mission of the Constellation program, which aims to take Americans back to the moon by 2020. Slide 3: Photo Credits-http://www.celestiamotherlode.net/catalog/images/screenshots/various/spacecraft_LCROSS_1__.jpg Two NASA spacecraft are barreling toward the moon. An empty Centaur rocket that weighs 2.2 tons should hit the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS). LCROSS cost $79 million and was an add-on to a bigger NASA satellite now circling the moon. This is the first image of the Moon taken from the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) on its approach. : This is the first image of the Moon taken from the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) on its approach.

Data sent back before LCROSS' crash was analyzed for signs of water ice. NASA scientists hope water in the form of ice.

Large amounts of frozen water available is necessary for future missions to the Moon, as water is so heavy and expensive to life into space from Earth.

Scientists hoped to find evidence of ice at the bottom of dark craters at the Moon's poles, where temperatures are lower than minus 170C. Slide 10: But live pictures relayed back from the Moon showed no sign of an impact- even though both craft dived into a darkened crater as planned.
