It pays to crash them once in awhile, so you can salvage the parts. I believe you can build five or six Eagles out of two crashed spacecraft.

China is making major headway in its mission to land a rover on the moon a big step forward in the nation's ambitious lunar exploration plans.

At China's Xichang Satellite Launch Center, the moon-bound Chang'e 3 spacecraft is undergoing its final tests ahead of a planned launch in early December. Meanwhile, a Long March 3B carrier rocket, reportedly modified with new technologies and improved reliability, is set to reach the launch center via train from Beijing on Friday (Nov. 1).

The touchdown target for the Chang'e 3 mission a lander and a lunar rover is thought to be Sinus Iridum, known as the Bay of Rainbows, a plain of basaltic lava on the moon, according to reports by China media outlets.
