The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is NASA's scouting mission to prepare for a return to the moon. One of its primary objectives will be to assess the lunar terrain for areas that would provide safe landing sites for future missions, both manned and unmanned, that plan to touch down on the moon's surface. This video helps explain how LRO will accomplish its objective.

The raw animation sequences used to create this video feature as well as high resolution stills from the video can be viewed and downloaded from How LRO Will Find Safe Landing Sites on the Moon (#3533).
