The LCROSS mission was designed to search for water on the moon by sending a rocket crashing into the moon, causing a big impact, and creating a crater throwing tons of debris and potentially water ice and vapor above the lunar surface. This impact occurred on October 9, 2009 and released materials from the lunar surface that are under analysis to determine composition and relative abundance. The science analysis phase of the of LCROSS mission is still on-going.
