…se, invece degli Stati Uniti, la corsa alla luna l’avessero vinta i russi. In realtà il loro progetto era troppo complesso e cervellotico per prevalere (es: un vettore a 5 stadi invece di 3, con 30 piccoli motori).

Però dal punto di vista estetico non c’è confronto. Lo steampunk retrò dei sovietici era impagabile…

    Mah, sembrerebbe invece che gli americani sulla luna non ci siano proprio andati!

    LRO Sees Apollo Landing Sites
    07.17.09

    NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, has returned its first imagery of the Apollo moon landing sites. The pictures show the Apollo missions’ lunar module descent stages sitting on the moon’s surface, as long shadows from a low sun angle make the modules’ locations evident.

    The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, or LROC, was able to image five of the six Apollo sites, with the remaining Apollo 12 site expected to be photographed in the coming weeks.

    The satellite reached lunar orbit June 23 and captured the Apollo sites between July 11 and 15. Though it had been expected that LRO would be able to resolve the remnants of the Apollo mission, these first images came before the spacecraft reached its final mapping orbit. Future LROC images from these sites will have two to three times greater resolution.
