NASA postponed the shooting of two probes

NASA announced Thursday the postponement, due to strong winds, the launch scheduled on the same day of two probes which must make an accurate map of the internal structures of the Moon, to better understand its evolution, but also that of the Earth.The next launch window from the base of Cape Canaveral in Florida (Southeast U.S.) will open Friday at 8:33 local time (12:33 GMT), said the U.S. space agency.Scientists hope the probe will uncover the secrets of the moon and help them understand how our natural satellite and the Earth and other rocky planets have evolved.
GRAIL both probes A and B must make very precise measurements of lunar gravity, showing the distribution of masses, and the thickness and composition of the internal strata of the moon to its core.
Three and a half months will be needed if the probes reach their destination, traveling more than 4 million miles.
Since the beginning of the space age in 1957, Moon was the subject of 109 missions, including six manned Apollo program of NASA, which helped to twelve people to walk on the moon and back 863 pounds of rocks and dust that continued to be discussed today.
A study, based on some of the analysis, published in the spring in the journal Science, reveals that the interior of the Moon contains, in proportion, as much water as the depths of the earth.
