LRO: 21st century orbiter to map the Moon
When the next generation of lunar astronauts step foot on the Moon in the years ahead, the definitive travel guide compiled by an instrument-laden spacecraft launching this week will detail the best and worst places to go and the risks the crews could face.

LCROSS: A smashing way to answer watery question
Are polar craters on the Moon, eternally dark places where sunlight hasn't been seen for billions of years, harboring natural reservoirs of water ice that could be farmed by future colonists? That's a question that NASA's audacious lunar impactor experiment plans to answer.
Moon-bound launch: Rocket cameras show the way
Hitch a ride aboard the Atlas 5 rocket destined for the Moon with this dazzling footage provided by video cameras facing forward and aft. See the liftoff and ascent through the clouds, the first stage separate, the Centaur ignite and the payload shroud jettison.
