LRO Scouts for Safe Landing Sites - Stereoscopic Version

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.

This visualization is a modified 3D stereo version of animation entry:#10349: LRO Scouts for Safe Landing Sites.

The raw stereoscopic visualization sequence used to create this narrated animation can be viewed and downloaded from entry: #3567: How LRO Will Find Safe Landing Sites on the Moon - Stereoscopic Version.
