Planetary defense radar prototype captures detailed images of the moon

Scientists at the Green Bank Observatory in West Virginia have used a transmitter with ‘less power than a microwave’ to produce the highest resolution images of the moon ever captured from Earth. Using the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) and Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), the team captured high-resolution radar images of the moon, laying the foundation for a next-generation radar system that will allow scientists to study planets, moons and asteroids throughout the solar system. The prototype of the
