A Dead Rocket Just Crashed Into the Moon, and Scientists Are Thrilled

A big hunk of space junk met an explosive end on Friday when it collided with the moon, and astronomers are excited to view the fallout.

An old rocket booster once thought to be the upper stage of a SpaceX Falcon 9, but now believed to be from the Chinese Change 5-T1 mission (although China denies this), slammed into the moons far side at over 5,000 miles per hour around 4:25 a.m. PT.
