LADEE ended its mission as planned with a crash into the lunar surface on April 17. Just days prior, it turned its star tracker camera toward the lunar horizon and captured a striking series of images of the lunar sunrise and zodiacal light.
I understand all that. We or they should think ahead and plan for an orbiter to land. They knew that the equipment would run out of its span life. Think about it. It is our money too.
