Lunar orbiting spacecraft, NASA, which allowed scientists to learn more about the internal structure and composition of the Moon, are preparing for a controlled landing on a mountain near the North Pole of the Moon on December 17. Probes are sent to the lunar surface on purpose, because their low orbit and the low fuel level prevent further scientific activities.
Map of the Moon will provide a better understanding of how Earth and other rocky planets in the solar system formed and evolved. Gora, where two spacecraft will make a landing, is located near the crater Goldschmidt. Both ships were in orbit of the moon on January 1, 2012. Landing speed 1.7 kilometers per second, however, the video broadcast of this process will not be, as this area will be in the shade at this time.
