Orbiter Focuses on Moon Landings [VIDEO]
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has captured some incredible images of Apollo 12, 14 and 17's landing sites showing the lunar rover, tires tracks, descent stages and experiments providing a new challenge for moon-landing hoax believers. The Orbiter's high resolution camera has been looking at the "whole" moon including all the Apollo landing sites at a distance of around 14 miles above the moon's surface, giving scientist images that are twice as sharp as the ones previously. Unfortunately, not even the latest imagery is sharp enough to show the golf balls that Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard said he sent flying for "miles and miles and miles" on the moon in 1971. "Those are too small to be resolved."
