About the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, or LROC, is a system of three cameras mounted on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), a NASA spacecraft that launched in June 2009. The cameras capture high-resolution black and white images and moderate resolution multi-spectral images of the lunar surface. LROC's task is to help identify future human landing sites on the Moon, study the light conditions at polar craters, and answer key lunar geology questions. The principal investigator of LROC is Dr. Mark Robinson of ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration.
