This week the LROC team looked back on ten years of lunar exploration at the Planetary Data Workshop, in Flagstaff, AZ. For this presentation, two 80+ GiB montages were created from NAC images collected from first light on 30 June 2009 until 17 June 2019. During a talk one can only give a small glimpse into the entire image, so we are posting the two images here allowing anyone to explore this fun visual and get a sense of just how large is the LROC dataset.
The LROC Team at Arizona State University is proud to announce an exciting new exhibit featuring some of the most compelling images collected by LROC over the past six years: “A New Moon Rises: New Views from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera” which opens 26 February at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum on the National Mall in Washington, D. C.
It was one year ago, 30 June 2009, when LROC was powered up and sent back its first images from the Moon.
LRO was launched one year ago today, 18 June 2009, 5:32pm EDT.
The biggest planetary science meeting of the year takes place this week (March 1-5) in Woodlands TX. There are more than 25 LROC specific presentations and many other lunar contributions.
