The Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) is an instrument on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission to map and study the Moon. LAMP is a spectrograph that images the ultraviolet region of the spectrum. Utilizing the faint glow of stars and other light reflected off the lunar surface, LAMP can see inside the darkest areas of the Moon to search for water ice and other valuable resources.
