It is not clear to me, so I am asking the assembled here the following:


--the probe that "landed" didn't really, did it?  It was an "impact probe"?
As in smashed into the crater, and not a soft-landing? 


--or was it a soft-landing?  The reports state it took 25 minutes to
"land".following ejection from the main orbiter.


--video was taken.will this video be released?


--does the lunar orbiter itself have imaging equipment?


Answers appreciated.
