  • Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera
    is a system of three cameras mounted on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter LRO that capture high resolution photos of the lunar surface Learn more Drill down with our data products We use our images and data to create amazing products like shaded relief models Check them out Fly to the Moon Our team uses our images and data to create other amazing products like flyover movies Check them out View the Apollo Landing Sites More LROC images of the Apollo landing sites can be viewed here with lots of educational features about the landing sites from flip books showing the site at different Sun angles to labels showing the tracks from extra vehicular activity and hardware the astronauts left behind Learn more See the images taken by the original Apollo crews ASU maintains the Apollo Digital Image Archive and the March to the Moon image databases which contain high resolution scans of the original flight films taken by the Mercury Gemini and Apollo missions Check out the Apollo Image Archive See images from the Mercury Gemini and Apollo Missions Mission Objectives LRO is currently in the Extended Mission phase focused on collecting the data needed to address key lunar science

    at ASU is a small piece of the much larger rock which is the largest and most intensively studied of the basalt samples collected at the Apollo 15 landing site 15555 was collected by Col Scott about 12 meters north of the rim of Hadley Rille This rock is predominantly composed of silicate minerals such as olivine pyroxene plagioclase along with some opaque minerals such as ilmenite an iron titanium oxide All of the basalts collected at the Apollo 15 site were found to be the same age and it is likely that they are related geologically The bulk composition of 15555 is thought to represent that of a primitive volcanic melt and has been used for experimental studies related to the geologic origin of lunar basalts Planetary scientists use information gleaned from such analyses to gain key insights into how terrestrial planets like the Moon and Earth form and evolve Sample 15555 has also been used for critical tests designed to perfect and calibrate methods of radiometric age dating employed by different laboratories around the U S and the world ASU thanks the NASA Johnson Space Center for the generous loan of the sample The Visitor s Gallery is
