Submission + - First Apollo Images From LROC (

bsdphx writes: LROC, the camera suite aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has taken it's first images of Apollo landing sites. Image resolution is from 1.0 to 1.4 meters per pixel and includes zoomable, scrollable images of the sites of Apollo 11, Apollo 14, Apollo 15, Apollo 16, and Apollo 17. These are only the first of many images to come, and as LRO reaches its nominal orbit we will see resolutions of approx. 0.5 meters per pixel!
