GRAIL Goes Boom

Hey Space Placers!

Check out this excellent article in Sky and Telescope's web site about the demise of the lunar gravity mapping mission GRAIL. It has references to the science from the mission and the results of the impacts of the twin spacecraft, including pictures of the craters made that were taken by the still operating Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).
