NASA EDGE Meets LRO

Last week the NASA EDGE team traveled to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD to shoot a segment on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).  LRO is the first mission in the US Space Exploration Policy, a plan to return to the moon and then to Mars and beyond.

You can learn more about LRO at www.nasa.gov/LRO.   Special thanks goes to Stephanie Stockman, Education and Public Outreach Lead for the mission.  She handled all the logistics from her end and made our life very easy during the shoot.

Finally, here’s a pic for the LRO team.  We found this in their conference room.  We need to look into getting one for NASA EDGE.

We look forward to now producing a segment on LCROSS because LRO and LCROSS are going up on the same spacecraft.  I guess we are off to Ames in the near future.  Thanks again to the LRO team for a great time up at NASA Goddard!

  1. Very nice, guys!

    I’m looking forward to seeing the segments on LRO and LCROSS in the near future. It has been fascinating (to me, at least) to keep up with the progress of these two spacecraft on Twitter. Keep up the good work!

  2. On a light year scale can the scientists’ of NASA determine approximate size of the Milky Way Galaxy?

    Is our solar system in one of the outer spiral arms?
