Dark Side Of The Moon Revealed: Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's
LAMP Reveals Lunar Surface Features

ScienceDaily (Jan. 13, 2012) =97 New maps produced by the Lyman
Alpha Mapping Project aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
reveal features at the Moon's northern and southern poles in
regions that lie in perpetual darkness. LAMP, developed by
Southwest Research Institute, uses a novel method to peer into
these so-called permanently shadowed regions (PSRs), making
visible the invisible. LAMP's principal investigator is Dr. Alan
Stern, associate vice president of the SwRI Space Science and
Engineering Division.

The LAMP maps show that many PSRs are darker at far-ultraviolet
wavelengths and redder than nearby surface areas that receive
sunlight. The darker regions are consistent with large surface
porosities - indicating "fluffy" soils - while the reddening
is consistent with the presence of water frost on the surface.
