The other thing worth celbrating...

The far side of the Moon has been far-too-often been incorrectly referred to as the "dark side" of the Moon. Idiots.

With this landing, most reporters have recently been very careful to refer to it as the "far side".

It's suddenly (and thankfully) gone from worse than 50% "dark side" nonsense to nearly 95% "far side" correct.

That alone makes this a highly successful mission.

Thank you.
