Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Earth Videos describes the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission, which is mapping the moon in unprecedented detail.
Data from the LRO will help scientists to better understand the events that have shaped the moon over the course of its evolutionary history.
The data will also be used for planning future missions to the moon by identifying critical information such as safe landing sites and potential resources.
