(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has just entered lunar orbit! Now that it is in orbit around the Moon, it should take about a couple of months to settle into its final polar orbit 50 kilometers above the surface. Once it settles into its final orbit, the LRO should be spending at least a year making detailed maps of the surface of the Moon (among other things).
