Title: Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera
Url: http://www.lroc.asu.edu/
Publisher: Arizona State University. School of Earth and Space Exploration
Description: Readers interested in high-quality images of the moon may appreciate the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), which has been in operation since 2009. This project describes itself as a "system of three cameras mounted on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) that capture high resolution photos of the lunar surface." Visitors may like to begin with LROC's Images section, where they will find dozens of photographs of lunar features such as the Sea of Tranquility and the crater Giordano Bruno, as well as downloadable videos created using LROC images and data. Other notable resources in this section are the interactive Quickmap, where visitors can view the moon through a variety of map projections and layers, and the Gigapan, a high-resolution composite image of the moon's northern polar region created from a mosaic of more than 10,000 images. STEM instructors should visit the Educators section, which features well-developed Educator Guides with activities for students from kindergarten through college, concise explanations of lunar science and its history, downloadable posters, and more. LROC is led by its principal investigator Mark Robinson, a professor in Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration, and by its deputy principal investigator Brett Denevi, a planetary scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
