NASA Trivia

The famed U.S. Geological Survey astronomer, Dr. Shoemaker, wanted to be an astronaut but was rejected because of a medical problem. But after he died, his ashes were placed on board the Lunar Prospector spacecraft before NASA crashed the probe into a crater on July 31, 1999, to find out if there’s water on the Moon.  Yes folks, your tax dollars at work!
