Following the two successful impacts, there was also an announcement that the final
resting place of the GRAIL twins will be named in memorial for
Astronaut Sally Ride [first American woman in LEO, still holds
"youngest American in orbit" title].

Thanks for the heads-up, I nearly forgot to tune in!

Best Regards,
