  1. For a craft that most of its builders build for a near vacuum environment, LADEE is sure quite aerodynamic (like the Apollo Command and Service Module). Its periodical plunge into low altitude, is to reduce the amount of drag the craft may experienced in the Moon's atmosphere (explained in 2:00). | Nevertheless, we congratulate ARC for a successful mission and may the data gained will be put into good use for the future.

  2. The US military is criminal because it kills the children and women of Yemen. And everyone who cooperates with the American army is a murderous criminal.
    Islam is the path of truth.China is a criminal state that oppresses innocent Muslims.
