 Request Your Own Images of the Moon Using GRAIL MoonKAM

On Sept. 8, 2011, NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, or GRAIL, mission launched to the moon. This mission will use twin spacecraft in a tandem orbit to measure the moon's gravity in unprecedented detail.

The GRAIL Moon Knowledge Acquired by Middle school students, or MoonKAM, project is an exciting opportunity that allows middle school students around the world to take pictures of the lunar surface from cameras mounted on the twin spacecraft. Visit the site to find student activities and teacher guides, Apple App and related educational resources. Observations will begin in March 2012.
