LRO/LCROSS 10 Year Anniversary
Ten years ago today the LCROSS and LRO missions launched together aboard an Atlas V 401 from SLC-41 at Cape Canaveral. It was an incredible moment. LCROSS went on to spectacular success, excavating and characterizing ice near the South Pole of the Moon. LRO, continues to orbit the Moon and revolutionize our understanding of our neighbor in space. Many thanks to the very many brilliant, dedicated colleagues on the LCROSS and LRO missions. This amazing launch ten years ago was a critical step in our sustained return of humans to the Moon.
