NASA to fire a big exploding rocket at the moon

Now this sounds fun: NASA has plans to fire a rocket into the moon to create a six-mile high explosion. Why? To see if there's any water there that we might be able to use if we ever colonize our largest satellite.

Seriously, how awesome will this be? I can't wait to see the photos and videos of a six-mile high explosion taking place on the surface of the moon. Sure, the first moonwalk was great and all, but this is what man was destined to do on the moon. Blow stuff up.
