– Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) Mission: Results from the Nadir Near-Infrared Spectrometer Aboard the Shepherding Spacecraft [#2025]
The nadir-viewing Near-Infrared Spectrometer (1.17 2.45 m) on the LCROSS Shepherding Spacecraft observed 4 min of the impact plume/curtain from the Centaur impact inside Cabeus Crater.
We present identifications of water and other absorption bands.
