佛罗里达州卡纳维拉尔角(CAPE CANAVERAL)——在佛罗里达州提图斯维尔(Titusville)的Astrotech航天公司(Astrotech Space Operations)对月球勘测轨道器(LRO)进行收尾时,可以看到三块太阳能电池板中的一块。该卫星的主要任务是在月球两极附近的一个永久阴影坑中搜寻月球上的水冰。LCROSS是一种低成本、加速发展的NASA月球侦察轨道器(LRO)的配套任务。LCROSS和LRO是美国宇航局计划中的第一批任务,计划在2020年前将人类送回月球,并开始建立月球前哨基地。发射目标是不早于6月2日从佛罗里达州卡纳维拉尔角空军基地发射。图片来源:NASA/Jack Pfaller

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – One of three solar panels is seen during closeout of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, at Astrotech Space Operations in Titusville, Fla. The satellite's primary mission is to search for water ice on the moon in a permanently shadowed crater near one of the lunar poles. LCROSS is a low-cost, accelerated-development, companion mission to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO. LCROSS and LRO are the first missions in NASA's plan to return humans to the moon and begin establishing a lunar outpost by 2020. Launch is targeted for no earlier than June 2 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller
