Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera

Professor Mark Robinson and his team in ASU's School of Earth and Space Sciences developed the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera or LROC in collaboration with NASA and the orbiter mission.

A system of three cameras locked to the lunar orbiter and launched in 2009, LROC acquires high resolution images of the moon, identifies safe landing spaces and helps scientists and others further understand the lunar surface for future endeavors.
