New NASA pics show Apollo astronaut footpaths on the moon


Just for the Kool Aid Party-types who think we never went to the moon

The LROC was launched in June of 2009, and had been orbiting and photographing the Moon with its Narrow and Wide Angle Cameras ever since. Although it has usually held a near-circular orbit at an average altitude of 50km above the lunar surface, on August 10th NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center temporarily altered its orbit to a more oval configuration, that brought it as low as 21km. The result were the photos…that show the Apollo landing sites in greater detail than ever before.
