I’ll be on the WRAL News on Fox 50 at 7:40 am Thursday September 8, 2011 talking with Kelcey Carlson and Bill Lesley about the upcoming GRAIL mission scheduled to launch to the Moon less than an hour after that. We’ll also hopefully have time to talk about the incredible pictures release today from LRO showing even better detail of the Apollo landing sites:
Seismic sensors left on the lunar surface by Apollo astronauts in the 1970s have revealed new information about the moon’s core. The sensors worked from the early 70’s when they were placed by Apollo 12, 13, 15, and 16 until 1977. Today’s computing power has enabled new looks at the data.
