The University of Arizona Mapped the Moon
July 20, 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, where astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took the first steps of the human race on the moon. Before NASA sent Americans to the moon, UA researchers imaged and mapped the lunar surface, which allowed NASA to choose landing sites for future robotic and Apollo missions. The University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins talks with UA Lunar and Planetary Laboratory researcher Tim Swindle about the innovative ways in which the moon maps were created.

About the University of Arizona:
Universities are defined by their people, and you could say the people here were born to challenge "business as usual." The University of Arizona existed before Arizona was a state. Our first graduating class in 1895 consisted of two women and one male.
Since then, we've learned that we're better together. We do more when we work across backgrounds, skills and perspectives. That's how we've become long-time partners with NASA, leaders in both the arts and sciences, and able to prepare students to succeed in a world where most of the jobs today's kindergartners will have don't even exist yet. We know how to converge.
