More Evidence Of Frozen Water On The Moon

The latest evidence of surface frost was found by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been orbiting the moon since 2009.

NASA orbiter finds new evidence of frost on moon's surface

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Scientists using data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, have identified bright areas in craters near the moon's south pole that are cold enough to have frost present on the surface.

Bright spots on our moon could be frost, says NASA

9 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

While the famed bright spot on dwarf planet Ceres got lots of attention in the past few years, it turns out that there are a few bright spots a bit closer to home. Analyzing data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), researchers have spotted bright areas on our own moon which, they say, are likely being caused by frost. Show More Summary

NASA's Lunar Orbiter Survived An Impact With A Tiny Meteor

Three years ago, a camera aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was struck by a tiny meteoroid as it was capturing an image of the lunar surface. By studying the resulting zigzag patterns, scientists have been able to estimate the speed and size of the offending object. More »      

NASA Lunar observation craft hit by meteoroid

9 months agoNews : The Raw Story

In an extremely unlikely sequence of events a camera on a NASA craft fitted with three cameras was hit by a meteoroid while compiling an image, researchers have determined. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter called the LRO was hit in 2014. The researchers noticed that something was wrong when the...

Camera on NASA's Lunar Orbiter survived 2014 meteoroid hit

On Oct. 13, 2014 something very strange happened to the camera aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), which normally produces beautifully clear images of the lunar surface, produced an image that was wild and jittery. Show More Summary
