Impact Schedule: 01 September 2006

Impact Schedule: 01 September 2006

1 September 2006

Revised impact predictions have been generated based on the SMART-1 orbit determination from 1 September 2006.

The calculations include a scheduled manoeuvre in the night of 1/2 September to raise the perilune by 600 m in order to maximise the chance to impact at the nominal perilune.

Projected Impact Trajectory and Lunar Topography

The longitude and latitude are planetographic and expressed w.r.t. to the IAU 1991 moon fixed system.

The height is relative to the DEM model derived from the Clementine LIDAR data.
