Only 45 minutes till the LCROSS (Lunar CRater Obsevation and Sensing Satellite) crashes into the moon to see if there's water there. Shown live on Nasa.gov on their media site. It's going to make a crater a third of the size of a footie pitch!

"Projected impact at the lunar South Pole is currently: Oct 9, 2009 at 4:30 a.m. PDT. Following four minutes behind, the shepherding spacecraft will fly through the debris plume, collecting and relaying data back to Earth before impacting the lunar surface and creating a second debris plume."
