Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer: Mission Overview

LADEE Ready for Launch

NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) spacecraft is now in the nose-cone at the top of the full Minotaur V launch vehicle stack at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, awaiting a launch at 11:27 p.m. EDT on Sept. 6, 2013.

The video presents the reasons for the mission, the science of the mission and how the public can help the LADEE team with its collection of data as LADEE orbits the Moon.

LADEE is a robotic mission that will orbit the moon to gather detailed information about the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface and environmental influences on lunar dust. Scheduled to launch from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Sept. 6, 2013, LADEE is the first spacecraft designed, developed, built, integrated and tested at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.
