LRO around the Moon

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has just entered lunar orbit! Now that it is in orbit around the Moon, it should take about a couple of months to settle into its final polar orbit 50 kilometers above the surface. Once it settles into its final orbit, the LRO should be spending at least a year making detailed maps of the surface of the Moon (among other things).
