        NASA Ames Rocket to the Moon

        NASA scientists in Mountain View built a spaceship that they deliberately crashed into the Moon in 2009, sending up a 40-milehigh cloud of debris. In this video from QUEST produced by KQED, learn about the goal to find water. Students learn why NASA is looking for water on the Moon, how the mission will work, and what data they are looking to collect. Students will also explore what scientists are doing to replicate the LCROSS mission on Earth and why.
