More about LROC

Posted by Ryan Anderson

I posted the other day about visiting the Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter Camera control room and being very impressed by the mission, the instrument, the control room and of course the folks running everything. Well, Dr. Sam Lawrence, a member of the LROC team, got wind of my post, and sent me some more great info! First of all is a nice virtual tour of the control center that also talks about the history of lunar exploration. Second, the LROC folks are releasing Apollo Images of the Week, complete with expert commentary, as part of the effort to digitize the Apollo data! What better way to experience this valuable ans spectacular dataset, than by having the experts tell you about the images?
