Nice Shot: NASA Goddard's Laser Ranging Facility hits the LRO in stride 28 times per second across a quarter million miles of space. Tom Zagwodzki/Goddard Space Flight Center
Fancy yourself a sharpshooter at laser tag? The team at Goddard Space Flight Center might just have you beat. After all, since launching the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, they've been firing a laser across 250,000 miles of space, hitting the minivan-sized LRO as it orbits the moon at nearly 3,600 miles per hour. It's no lucky shot either; they do it 28 times per second.
