I asked this on another thread, but I think it might need a thread of its own. If this has already been covered, can you please insert the link to the appropriate thread? I am wondering about the effect the LCROSS and LRO missions had on the moon. I've searched, but the most I can find is the estimation of the matter displacement of the impact before it occurred and details about the plume from the impact. I've also found a few different estimations of the magnitude of the impact. Was the libration of the moon affected at all? If so, how was it affected? Was the moon's path of orbit affected? If so, how? If you have an answer for any of these questions (whether it be yes or no or whatever), can you please give me a detailed answer, including any magnitude of force, etc, and major equations which may be involved. I would like to research them as a point of interest. Thx!
