Ajay even with this credit we cannot be complacent there is still a whole universe to discover, many nations will have to work together space is much to large for any one nation to dominate. Military dominance on earth may not translate to space dominance.I think one would remember Chandrayaan/India than NASA. The Spacecraft will be always given credit. most of news articles worldwide gave credit to India & Chandryaan. Scientific Journals would also remember it as Chandrayaans discovery.
For the moon to ever have retained an atmosphere it would have to have had stronger magnetic fields. Considering the small size of the moon, the only way for it to ever have happened would be a denser core. The core has not changed since the formation of the planetary body hence, making an atmosphere improbable.Correct me if i'm wrong,but judging by mass of the moon it is a fact that the moon never had an atmosphere.....it cant hold one
If the Earth/Moon collision theory is true, it would not have picked up life from the Earth. The planet was still in its molten formation state when it would have happened and was billions of years before the first amino acids started to form primitive life.Life finds a way to survive in hardest of living conditions.....that is a fact.....one can see numerous such examples on earth......so,judging by the theory that moon was a part of earth once,and maybe it got seperated with some earliest life forms thriving on it....and also evidence of water on moon,we can possibly expect(distant chance) one such life forms being able to survive and finding a way to thrive and reproduce in harsh conditions with the ultra-light and transparent atmosphere of moon and WATER on it.......surely sounds awkward,but not absolutely impossible
I hope there will be some spacecraft around moon to observe chandrayaan crashing onto moon. but i wonder how difficult it would be track our spacecraft right now. I read that it can be tracked powerful US & Russian Radars.However, it now says that "based on continued evaluation of all available data and consultation/input from members of the LCROSS Science Team and the scientific community, including impact experts, ground and space based observers, and observations from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), Lunar Prospector (LP), Chandrayaan-1 and JAXA's Kaguya spacecraft", the suicide mission will now end in a 98-kilometre-wide crater called Cabeus.
