LRO / LCROSS At The Moon

The LRO satellite is going through the process of making a series of orbital correction thruster burns over the next couple of days. NASA flight engineers are bringing the sensors and computers on line, and so far everything seems to be working fine.

The LCROSS satellite, launched with LRO, separated and made a swing-by of the Moon. Along with an empty upper stage which propelled the objects to the Moon, LCROSS will make measurements of impacts onto the lunar surface.
