NASA plans to revisit the moon, will bring robots and lasers

It has been quite a while since NASA has bothered with the moon in any great deal, but the US space agency is looking to make a lunar come back next month.

 

 

NASA sent up its Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer from its Wallops Flight Facility launch pad based in Virginia. LADEE is currently orbiting the Earth at the moment, but next month it will be circling the moon conducting various experiments, all without a human being on-board the craft.

 

NASA will be using a Lunar Laser Communications Demonstration, which, in a nutshell is fancy laser-powered space Internet that puts anything you use to shame.
