The Bombing of the Moon
This edition of the Digital Divide will follow NASA's bombing of the moon, with impact set to take place earlier in the mornign at 4:31 AM. For our membership drive special, we'll cover the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite or LCROSS mission.
To continue our space theme, we'll hear from poet Nikki Giovanni and her thoughts on traveling to Mars.
We'll also cover the FCC's proposed net neutrality rules, the United States losing control of the internet, the banning of robocalls and more.
The purpose of the LCROSS mission is to send a spacecraft to impact the moon at high velocity and observe the impact and resulting cloud of debris to detect water.
You can read more about LCROSS on the NASA website.
