W00t, LRO! NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter images 5/6 Apollo mission sites


In an awesome display of “Take THAT” to the moon hoax conspiracy nuts, NASA’s LRO has imaged the descent modules of 5 of 6 Apollo landing sites. The landing sites imaged are from Apollo missions 11, 14, 15, 16, and 17. Apollo 12 has not been imaged yet.

In addition, these are preliminary images, taken before LRO entered its destination orbit, and future images should have 2 to 3 times the resolution of the current set.

As Aaron Slack says on twitter, “Can I get a w00t for LRO?”
