        NASA | LAMP: Peering into the Lunar Dark

        This video describes NASA’s LAMP experiment (Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project), which maps ambient ultraviolet light reflecting off of the Moon. The data will give scientists more information about the moon’s composition and help determine whether the moon has frost. Spectrographs on board LAMP break up the incoming light into narrow bands of ultraviolet light, an analysis that hasn’t yet been done and one that scientists believe will yield important new insights about the Moon.
