New Moon Photos from NASA

Not bad… Not bad at all. We’re (the U.S.) going to basically photograph the entire moon down to a resolution of 10′ (See new pic below…)

Yeah, I’ll say the words that everyone is thinking but no one dares utter for fear of being called “superficial” or “unsophisticated”… “Will we be able to see the moon buggies?” (We plunked three LRV or “Lunar Roving Vehicles” in Apollo missions 15, 16, and 17.) There, I said it, and the answer is probably, “just barely.”

That out of the way, you can follow the progress of this new Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) here.

Cool beyond words!

    Incredibly cool pictures!

    Wouldn’t that be something if we zoomed in to where we left the moon buggies and found them

    a.) Covered with parking tickets and with a Denver Boot covering one of the wheels? Or worse:
    b.) STOLEN?

    You know, it just dawned on me as to why the national debt is so darn high: Those vehicles were rented. We’d have been a lot better off if we hadn’t added on the collision & personal injury insurance.
