  • Abstract Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR), by providing routine measurements of the distance to retro-reflector arrays on the lunar surface with centimeter accuracy, has allowed very accurate investigations of the Moon's orbital dynamics, including relativistic corrections. The lunar rotation, physical librations, and tidal deformation have also been investigated, providing new insight on the fluid core and the physical properties of the interior ( Williams et al., 2006 ). A new laser ranging station… CONTINUE READING
