The seven instruments aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter provide varied and unique datasets, but because of its polar orbit, the data coverage from LRO is best at the lunar poles. This visualization shows datasets from three LRO instruments at the moons south pole and then flies around the lunar terrain shown by the last of the three, the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter. On March 15, the publicly accessible Planetary Data System will release data sets from the seven instruments on board NASAs Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/news/image_release.html Want more?
