NASA Completes LADEE Mission In Spectacular Fashion By Crashing It Into The Moon
Ground controllers confirmed that NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) spacecraft impacted the surface on the far side of the moon late Thursday evening as planned.
LADEE lacked the fuel to continue operations and was intentionally crashed into the lunar surface. “At the time of impact, LADEE was traveling at a speed of 3,600 miles per hour – about three times the speed of a high-powered rifle bullet,” said LADEE project scientist Rick Elphic.

Farewell, LADEE. You were one of my favorite missions to follow; your birth unto the heavens was a launch I’ll never forget for the rest of my days. With you were the collective hopes and dreams of countless people, those who yearned to go with you on your Lunar voyage, who wanted to break the bonds of Earth and soar above all creation. With you, also, the drive and determination of those hopeful and daring to one day follow in your footsteps.
The night the world’s eyes were turned to you mine were first opened to the vastness of the cosmos, something which I never saw before and have never seen since. I felt your launch in my bones, not because I was close enough to your flaming Minotaur, but because you resonated something inside me which as kept me alive to this day - you reminded me who I was.With that, dear LADEE, I thank you for an excellent mission, and hope that, one day, many years in the future, humans will find your remains on the lunar surface and cherish you, just as I do.To see my recollection of the LADEE launch in September, 2013, check out my post here. I was about a two miles from the launch pad at Wallops Island, Virginia.

"'Beat' became something someone might want to be. As used by low-down blacks, in the spaces between drug-highs and sex-highs and music-highs, 'beat' packed into this abrupt syllable the experience of no-money, sadness, rejection. In its altering usage, however, the sense changed from passive to active - you weren't rejected, you did the rejecting [of society ect]. As part of the process, the black word 'beat' turned white."
