Exploring Caves on the Moon with Laser Imaging

Exploring Caves on the Moon with Laser Imaging

Record date: Nov 10, 2015

Andreas Velten, Assistant Scientist, Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation, UW-Madison, introduces an imaging system which sends laser pulses from a lunar satellite to the entrances of caves on the moon. Analysis of the light “echo” from the caves provides images of the interiors and helps scientists to determine which of the caves could be explored with a lunar rover.
