Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Images Offer Sharper Views of Apollo Landing Sites

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured the sharpest images ever taken from space of the Apollo 12, 14 and 17 landing sites. Images show the twists and turns of the paths made when the astronauts explored the lunar surface.

The images also show where the astronauts placed some of the scientific instruments that provided the first insight into the moon’s environment and interior.” More
