LADEE Launch Social


NASA hosted 50 of it’s social media followers on September 5 and 6 for a behind the scenes look at activities leading up to the launch of the agency’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission.

LADEE is a robotic mission that will orbit our moon to gather detailed information about the structure and composition of the thin lunar atmosphere and determine if dust is being lofted into the lunar sky.

A thorough understanding of these characteristics of our nearest celestial neighbor will help researchers understand other bodies in the solar system.
