Lunar Landing Sites
The LRO mission's LIDAR, once the data is available, should provide exellent information with regard to landing zone data. Soil "loose-ness" is indicated by differing thermal indications, based on solar heating after night (the more dense, the faster the temperature changes). Thus, final and published results of the data from LRO later this year or next will prove to be very helpful in specific landing site selection. Pete .
