So when do we get to see images of Luna 9 and 13 and Surveyor 2 and 4 from LRO? http://www.planetary.org/blog/article/00003419/ New views of Lunokhod 1 and Luna 17 from Lunar Reconnaissance OrbiterMar. 14, 2012 | 17:47 PDT | Mar. 15 00:47 UTC It is always thrilling to see relics of human exploration out there on other worlds. Today, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera team posted some new photos of two defunct spacecraft: the Luna 17 lander and the Lunokhod 1 rover. I've posted images of the two craft before, but the ones released today are much better. It's still a bit hard to make out the shape of the rover, but you can very clearly see the ramps from Luna 17 down which the rover debarked, and the characteristic parallel tracks and donuts made by a multi-wheeled rover roving and turning in place.
