ooh...space snub!

Today NASA crashed a satellite into the moon in order to determine if there actually is ice somewhere down there. The results was....pretty much inconclusive at this point. It did, however, disappoint several losers in lawn chairs who thought they were going to be able to see, I don't know, the moon blow up or something.

While they may or may not have achieved their primary goals if one of their secondary goals was to make some junior staffer look foolish them mission accomplished, boys. Check out this video released by NASA. A lot of it pretty boring chatter and moon approach shots and upon actual impact it just goes black but if you go to about 4:50 and watch the guy in the foreground you'll see what I'm talking about.

Hahahaha.

"Alright, the boss is finally coming over to congratulate me on making this mission a success with all of my hard work. High five! ... ... High five?"
"What the hell are you doing, get those headphones back on."
"Uh, yes, sir."
