I said nearly. Perhaps I should have said "as some of the satellite imagery in Google Earth". The best satellite imagery in Google Earth comes from GeoEye and can reach a resolution of up to .5 meters. This will be the best from LROCand is better than the image of Rio.
I didn't say the images won't get much better.
Tiny right? Well yes. But is that the best we can do? Pretty much.

It has the look and feel of legitimate 'apologetics', but its nothing more than dis-info - poorly done at that. BUT what really surprises me the most though is that some of the people that run this site have allowed themselves to be duped as well............shame on you ATS
What is important is the ground resolution. The LRO ground resolution is about 1 meter. The Ikonos ground resolution is .8 meter.
Though it had been expected that LRO would be able to resolve the remnants of the Apollo mission, these first images came before the spacecraft reached its final mapping orbit. Future LROC images from these sites will have two to three times greater resolution.
