From Quarks to Quasars

The Lunar Laser Ranging Retroreflector Array

The Apollo astronauts carried out a number of scientific tasks while on the surface of the moon. One of these tasks was to set up the Lunar Laser Ranging Retroreflector Array. It’s an experiment that uses mirrors to help scientists collect very accurate telemetry from the surface of the moon without a human or robotic presence. Today, it’s the only experiment from the Apollo missions that is still in operation.
