Griffin mentions LRO

NASA Administrator Michael Griffin gave a speech last week at the Goddard Symposium, and his speech mentioned quite a bit about what’s going on in NASA lately and what the current thinking about future work is.


I noticed that he gave mention to the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which will carry an instrument I worked on at JPL, the DIviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment. It’s an instrument very similar to the Mars Climate Sounder on MRO.

LRO is set to launch later this year from the Cape.
