And scientists say that information gathered during the event could help them figure out where to land a rover on the moon.

Sounds like Prokofiev was asking for trouble, doesn't it?

O'Riordan defined the sound of The Cranberries — with hit songs like "Linger," "Salvation" and "Zombie." She brought a particularly Irish inflection to pop charts around the world, particularly in the 1990s.
