The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) team at the Goddard Space Flight Center has released an outstanding video detailing the lunar surface like never seen before. The LRO team released the video in celebration of the orbiter’s 1000th day around the Moon. The LRO’s mission is to study and complete an extremely detailed atlas of the Moon’s features and resources necessary to construct a lunar outpost.
The WISE program was launched on December 14th, 2009 with the objective of cataloging the entire night sky in the infrared wavelength. Numerous discoveries have been made from the program, including the “Trojan” asteroid found to share the same path around the Sun as our Earth.
