Are you serious? As you say yourself, it will crash in a lunar crater - an existing impact crater. This will barely make a dent by comparison.

Anyway, the former USSR, China, Japan, and India have also impacted spacecraft on the Moon.

LCROSS is about to pwn it pretty bad. :)

(There is a thread on this topic (LCROSS, not pwnage) already, in Space Exploration:
