NASA's LROC to photograph Apollo mission sites

07/12/2005 12:10 PM

Since December 19, 1972, when Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt left the surface of the moon, no one has viewed any of the Apollo mission sites. NASA plans to remedy this in 2008, when the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter takes a low orbit over the Moon and photographs the landing sites, as well as potential polar sites for a lunar base. Aerial views of the sites should once and for all put to rest conspiracy theories that the US never reached the Moon.

People who doubt the landing are going to dismiss the people who they think lied to them originally. NASA is not high on their trusted organization lists.
However I just want to know how long till Google Maps will let you zoom in and out off the moon photos.
