HI all,

NASA has just released photos of the Apollo landing sites taken by LRO with a resolution of about 1 metre per pixel. Although this is not the maximum possible resolution, it is still good enough to see the descent stage of the LEM on the surface, and even tracks made by the astronauts.

Great images!!

Cheers,

Maurice

PS: this is of course assuming that the Apollo landings really did occur somewhere other than in a hanger in New Mexico!!! 8O wink
