Description:

Northrop Grumman engineers in Redondo Beach, Calif., lower the LCROSS spacecraft into a vacuum chamber that simulates conditions in space. It will be destroyed while seeking water ice on the moon.

My Notes:
Well I pulled this image from a Popular Mechanics story by Michael Milstein, in the September issue, that was tweeted about by LCROSS on twitter. LCROSS stands for Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite.
