LRO Ready For Nominal Mission Orbit

NASA LRO Weekly Report, Week Ending 09.11.09

"LRO commissioning has continued according to plan. On Wednesday September 9th the LRO Completion of Commissioning Review was held and it was confirmed that would execute MOI and proceed to the 50km nominal mission orbit on September 15th , thus beginning the prime ESMD Exploration mission. All instrument teams reported and defended their readiness to proceed with the primary mission. The status of the LRO Spacecraft and Ground Systems was also reviewed. The Instruments, the Spacecraft, and the Ground Systems continue to operate essentially flawlessly. There are no significant open issues or problems that preclude the start of the nominal mission."
