NASA ready to crash probe into moon

Mission managers will send the orbiter a signal to turn off all its science instruments on 11 April and set the craft on course for a crash landing. But the moon's gravity field is very uneven, and variations in the field will affect LADEE's path as it descends. That means no one is certain exactly when or where on the far side it will crash, just that it should happen sometime before 21 April. NASA is holding a contest to guess the precise spot where LADEE will meet its fate. The resulting crater should be visible to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter in the coming months.
