Telescope images of moon
« on: April 16, 2019, 05:56:42 PM »
I found these recently online and found them interesting. Apparently one can observe evidence of the moon landing through telescopes.

Also, here is a picture of the recent Chinese moon landing on the far side. Very cool stuff.

These are not "telescope images of the moon" and one cannot "observe evidence of the moon landing through telescopes."

The images are from the LROC spacecraft.

I agree with Tom in this instance.  Although it would never be used to observe the Moons surface, even the Hubble Space Telescope would be unable to resolve details as small as anything that was left behind by the Apollo astronauts. It would be able to resolve a linear distance of about 85m.  An average amateur telescope under good conditions, just under 2km.

The LRO by comparison can resolve much, much smaller details and so yes it is able to see equipment/footprints left behind.

I would contend that LROC carries two 700 mm telescopes.

Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

So .. you agree that there's an orbiter going around the Moon?
