佛罗里达州卡纳维拉尔角——在佛罗里达州提图斯维尔的Astrotech太空行动中,技术人员在飞行前从月球勘测轨道器(LRO)上移除红色标签项目。LRO将与美国国家航空航天局的月球陨石坑观测和传感卫星LCROSS航天器相匹配。这里看到的LRO上的仪器是测量月球中子通量的LEND(底部)和LROC(上方),这是一个提供全色图像的窄角照相机。这颗卫星的主要任务是在月球两极附近的一个永久阴影坑中寻找月球上的水冰。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. – At Astrotech Space Operations in Titusville, Fla., technicians remove red-tag items from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, before flight. The LRO will be mated with NASA's Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite, known as LCROSS, spacecraft. Instruments on the LRO seen here are the LEND (bottom) that will measure the flux of neutrons from the moon and the LROC (above it), a narrow angle camera that will provide panchromatic images. 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
