Awww come on Doug. what would you rather crash through the roof of your
house right now - a 100 kg nose cone orientated lunar / planetary or an HED?
even if you like HEds better that 100 kg of moon rock could buy you a TON of
HEDs - literally speaking ofcourse. I like HEDs to, but there is no question
that the planetary stuff is better to have! :)
