Can we measure the size and shape of equipment and other objects on the Moon using today’s orbital images from LROC cameras? As an example, to demonstrate the precise 3D measurement capability of LROC NAC stereo imagery, three objects (including the Lunar Module, ALSEP equipment, and Turtle Rock) and the astronauts’ traverse at the Apollo 14 landing site are measured and their 3D models are reconstructed. Such 3D measurements and models are used for planning and designing future human landed missions to the Moon [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University/The Ohio State University].
