    True. Although Sat imagery kinda killed the pragmatic side of the SR71. The stuff we can see from LEO via satellite is scary good these days.

    Yeah, well blame the 'planets' are the ones that 'clear their orbit' vs 'minor planets' which are just 'massive enough to be round'.

    I see they did manage to locate it at least. Wonder why it was only going (what?) 200mph getting there? 7 weeks to the moon?

    Low powered spacecraft don't do a straight lunar insertion burn, instead relying on repeated burns at perigee to raise maximum altitude until lunar capture.
