First Hi-Res LRO Photos of Lunar Landing Sites

NASA has released the first of the hi-resolution photos of the lunar landing sites, from the LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter), showing artifacts of Apollo missions there. On these first photos, evidence of the artifacts is mainly through bright objects with long shadows of lunar modules Eagle, Falcon, Orion, Challenger and Antares, and areas of human footpaths. The Flat Earth Society will not be impressed. Later photos will have three times the resolution, so details will be more apparent and The Flat Earth Society will be three times less unimpressed.

The primary LRO mission is to identify future landing sites.
