Mapping the Moon with WALL-E

Many students have the misconception that NASA only sends astronauts to space, when in reality, NASA has over 60 science missions currently taking place in addition to the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. This module will introduce students to a few of the newest NASA missions. It also features NASA's efforts to Return to the Moon with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and the Lunar Crater and Observation Sensing Satellite (LCROSS). During the grade 5-8 module, we will also introduce students to the concepts behind satellite data collection with a hands-on demonstration of the LIDAR instrument on LRO.
