LRO - Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's (LRO) instrument suite will provide the highest resolution data, and the most comprehensive data set ever returned from the moon. Some of the data includes:

  • Supply information on Lunar radiation environment
  • Evaluating the biological impacts and allowing development of protective technologies
  • Provide the first highly accurate 3D lunar cartographic maps
  • Map mineralogy across the whole moon
  • Search for polar volatiles (especially water ice)
  • Provide an assessment of features for landing sites
