Title: Encore: New Looks at the Apollo Landing Sites
Podcaster: Nancy Atkinson and Noah Petro
Organization: NASA Lunar Science Institute
Description: Some of the latest images from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter are giving us a closer look at the Apollo 12, 14 and 17 landing sites, as they are some of the highest resolution pictures ever of our human forays onto another world, as seen from orbit above. LRO dipped to a lower altitude, just 21 kilometers (13 miles) over the lunar surface to take these new images. With us today to tell us more about this is Noah Petro, Associate Project Scientist with LRO, and is at the Goddard Space Flight center.
Bios: The NLSI brings together leading lunar scientists from around the world to further NASA lunar science and exploration.
Dr. Noah Petro is the Associate Project Scientist with LRO, and is at the Goddard Space Flight Center. See his bio here.
