You call that a SMART probe?

Wikipedia is my home page on my computers, because it means from the moment I open the internet I'm learning - or some bullshit like that. What? It has a feature article, news, DYK and on this day among other things.

Anyway...
In the news this week I noticed this:
The European Space Agency's SMART-1 satellite successfully completes its mission by deliberately crashing onto the Moon.
"Delibrately crashing" into the Moon; that's not exactly a "smart" thing, or something regarded as a success - but I think it might have actually been the point of the Smart-1. Maybe. Anyway the ESA seems to be sticking to that story. Read more at BBC.
