Stunning images of the lunar surface from Nasa’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. You can almost taste the water… Video Credit: NASA/GSFC/Moscow Institute for Space Research/UCLA/MIT.

    Thanks, Pete. I wonder if Obama’s axe will stimulate ‘unmanned’ study of the lunar surface.

    David,

    Other countries are preparing to go too, notably the Chinese. It ain’t over yet.

  • Kevsterino

    If the Chinese space program challenges ours, it could be the best thing to happen for American space exploration since Sputnik.

    I love this film series, craters look much more majestic with the shadows.

    Yes, Joe (#2), a bit of competition may cause American money to make itself available, in spite of the healthcare budget!
