NASA launches rocket to the moon

9687633522_59d7f73a54_cAn unmanned rocket was launched by NASA Friday night.

The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) is headed toward the moon after launching on a Minataur V rocket Friday night from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The mission will study the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface and environmental influences on lunar dust.

LADEE is a robotic research mission that will orbit the moon to gather detailed information about the structure and composition of the thin lunar atmosphere and determine whether dust is being lofted into the lunar sky. Using Instagram, NASA will post historic moon images and real-time photos from the launch complex before and during Friday’s scheduled liftoff.
