  The latest press info on LADEE was that it was going to go into a lunar orbit on 6 October 2013.
  Space Track.org now shows LADEE as decayed on 7 October 2013.
   
  Does this mean the orbit insertion failed and that the spacecraft impacted on the Moon? Of course NASA is as quiet as a doornail as a result of the irresponsible behaviour of Congress.
   
  Any comments?
