NASA-made tool on lunar satnav mission to study moon’s shape

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) experimental moon satnav mission Lunar Pathfinder will fly a NASA-built instrument that will explore the shape and structure of Earth’s celestial companion in greater detail than before.

The instrument is an array of laser reflectors that will bounce back signals sent from Earth to help scientists study the moon‘s gravity and internal structure with great accuracy.
