Washington, March 20 ( ANI ): NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) helped astronomers to witness the last moment of the agency's twin GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory) spacecraft, when they were intentionally crashed into a mountain near the Moon's north pole on Dec.
Presentations will include recent science findings from the rover Curiosity on Mars, and an update on NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter missions.
The discovery was made thanks to a camera aboard the US Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter of Arizona State University with Brett Denevi of Johns Hopkins University, sifted through the data for telltale jumps in the ratio of ultra-violet to visible light.
The website is a one-stop location for finding, retrieving, and analyzing information about the moon, including the most recent lunar surface imagery, altimetry, temperature, and lighting--as provided by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and its seven onboard instruments.
Material thrown up by the impact was then analysed by instruments on the American space agency Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter probe.
[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] Now, images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter reveal 14 new scarps, providing the first definitive evidence that the scarps occur globally.
NASA's lunar reconnaissance orbiter ( LRO) is expected to take sharper images and reveal more such skylights.
