Let me show you something. And when I say "something", I mean something.





This image is from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, and it shows the Apollo 11 landing site. We’ve seen it before, but this time LRO is in its 50 km mapping orbit, so the resolution on this image is far higher — about 50 or so centimeters (20 inches). In this image, the tracks made by Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as they scampered on the Moon for 2 hours and 31 minutes are obvious. You can even see the lander footpads, each just less than a meter (a bit over a yard) across.


As the LRO gets clearer and clearer pics, the "we never went to the moon" theorist are will probably become a thing of the past (one can hope)

Here's a pull back of the image above,

Really cool to see. I can't wait until we get really clear photos of the moon's surface. It would be awesome to see in detail.

How cool is that! Really incredible resolution there.

Here's a link to the ASU site where you can browse/zoom the full res image...

wms.lroc.asu.edu...

Too bad NASA is not taking requests for other areas to photograph. I'd like to compare some old LO pics to some new LRO pics for sure.
