The mission also carried along some cameras, which were operated by school kids around the U.S. The MoonKam project collected some 115,000 images of the moon, Zuber said, which are being hosted in an online archive for future educational use. The pictures represent striking detail of the moon's surface, down to 300 meters on the lunar surface. For comparison, when the first Viking orbiters photographed Mars, they reached about 200 meters resolution. And this is a science experiment solely for the purpose of educating kids.
