5060303 story Images of Apollo Landing Sites Soon Available 263 Posted by timothy on Wednesday July 01, 2009 @04:02PM from the that'll-show-'em dept. eric.brasseur writes "The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has entered lunar orbit in perfect shape. From a height of 50 km, it will image the Moon in high resolution. The hardware left by the Apollo missions will be clearly visible. The Soviet automatic probes will also be photographed. Previous best images were made by the Japanese probe Kaguya and showed a white patch where the dust had been blown away by the blast of the LM engine."
