Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

Humans have been to the moon numerous times, but the United States is gearing up to do so again with the creation of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission. With a launch date of October 31, 2008, the goal of the LRO is to obtain "data that will facilitate returning humans safely to the Moon and enable extended stays.� On this site, visitors can learn all of the excellent details about the mission. The site includes a timeline of scheduled events, the particulars about the spacecraft and its instruments, and a wide range of multimedia files and images. In keeping with NASA's high video standards, there are a number of rather remarkable short films here, including one that shows the LRO orbiting the moon.
