The Lunar CRater Observations and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission impacted a spent Centaur rocket stage into a permanently shadowed region near the lunar south pole. The Sheperding Spacecraft (SSC) separated ∼9 hours before impact and performed a small braking maneuver in order to observe the Centaur impact plume, looking for evidence of water and other volatiles, before impacting itself.This paper describes the registration of imagery of the LCROSS impact region from the mid- and near… 
The Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) Payload Development and Performance in Flight
The primary objective of the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) was to confirm the presence or absence of water ice in a permanently shadowed region (PSR) at a lunar pole. LCROSS
Temperatures Near the Lunar Poles and Their Correlation With Hydrogen Predicted by LEND
The lunar polar regions offer permanently shadowed regions (PSRs) representing the only regions which are cold enough for water ice to accumulate on the surface. The Lunar Exploration Neutron
Preliminary Delta-V Analysis to Deploy a CubeSat Impactor from the Mothership During a Flight Inside the Lunar Sphere of Influence
The current work analyzes the delta-V characteristics to deploy a lunar CubeSat impactor for an early phase feasibility study. The lunar CubeSat impactor is assumed to ride on the mothership and be
Carbon Dioxide Cold Traps on the Moon
Water ice is expected to be trapped in permanently cold regions near the lunar poles. Other ices (“super‐volatiles”) are trapped at lower temperatures, close to the lowest temperatures measured
Calibration and validation of the lunar exploration neutron detector (LEND) observations for the study of the moon volatiles
This paper reviews improved calibration methods for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s (LRO) Lunar Exploration Neutron Detector (LEND). We cross-calibrated the set of LEND observations and models of
W Agile : From Software to Mission
The Resource Prospector (RP) is an in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) technology demonstration mission, designed to search for volatiles at the Lunar South Pole. This is NASA’s first near real time
Results from the NMSU‐NASA Marshall Space Flight Center LCROSS observational campaign

The LCROSS Cratering Experiment
TLDR
Watering the Moon About a year ago, a spent upper stage of an Atlas rocket was deliberately crashed into a crater at the south pole of the Moon, ejecting a plume of debris, dust, and vapor that revealed water and other volatiles within the ejecta cloud.
Flight Operations for the LCROSS Lunar Impactor Mission
The LCROSS (Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite) mission was conceived as a low-cost means of determining the nature of hydrogen concentrated at the polar regions of the moon.
Detection of Water in the LCROSS Ejecta Plume
TLDR
The Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) mission was designed to provide direct evidence that water ice may be presented in permanently shadowed craters of the Moon, and spectral bands of a number of other volatile compounds were observed.
