LADEE Set to Launch

LADEE Set to Launch

NASA's newest probe, dubbed the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), will launch later this week. The craft is expected to take 30 days to reach the moon and will spend the next 100 days orbiting it and collecting data on both the atmosphere and dust composition found there. Scientists hope that the project will shed light on other celestial locations, such as Mercury, where atmosphere samples have been obtained, but surface research yet to be performed.
