NASA’s LADEE Moon Launch

Just sat outside in my yard and watched NASA’s LADEE up in the sky. It was pretty far being I’m in Boston but it was clear that I jaws viewing the rocket. So awesome. Yes I am very much a GEEK.

NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE, pronounced like “laddie”) is a robotic mission that will orbit the moon to gather detailed information about the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface and environmental influences on lunar dust. A thorough understanding of these characteristics will address long-standing unknowns, and help scientists understand other planetary bodies as well.
