While watching a mission briefing on SpaceVidcast yesterday, somebody mentioned the instrument called LOLA, and my brain popped out this:

LCROSS Moon Mission (To the tune of "Copacabana")

Her name was LOLA, she was a spacecraft
She caught a ride on LRO, in an Atlas Five, you know
She took some photos and dropped impactors
And so she took off for the moon, on a fine day in late June
Launch Complex For-ty One, they took off in the sun
They were young and they were flying, who could ask for more?

At the LCROSS, LCROSS Moon Mission
The thing that our Ben and Cari are dishin’
At the LCROSS, LCROSS Moon Mission
Science and passion are always the fashion at the LCROSS...
Come fall in love

His name was CRaTER, he was a sensor
He looked out for cosmic rays, on those quiet lunar days
And when he finished, they dropped a Centaur
Dust and ice went out so far, you could catch it in a jar
And the tel-es-copes looked, they wrote it up in books
There was laughing and much rejoicing
When the ice! Showed! Through!

At the LCROSS, LCROSS Moon Mission
The thing that our Ben and Cari are dishin’
At the LCROSS, LCROSS Moon Mission
Science and passion are always the fashion at the LCROSS...
Come fall in love

(Instrumental)

Her name was LOLA, she was a spacecraft...
Just like 40 years ago, when Apollo was the show...
Now we are happy, we're goin' back there
And stickin' feathers in our hair and sendin' rockets way up there.
We sit here so refined, ex-cite-ment in our minds.
‘Cause the beauty of those pictures
Could make you! Go! Blind!

At the LCROSS, LCROSS Moon Mission...
The thing that our Ben and Cari are dishin'.
At the LCROSS, LCROSS Moon Mission
Science and passion are always the fashion at the LCROSS...
Come fall in love.
