Planetary Radio LIVE Webcast of LADEE's Launch to the Moon

Please accept marketing-cookies to watch this video.

The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) blasted off for the moon on Friday, September 6.  We celebrated that launch with another installment of Planetary Radio Live in Pasadena in front of a crowd at the Crawford Family Forum at Southern California Public Radio.

The show featured Planetary Society Director of Projects Bruce Betts and UCLA planetary scientist Dr. David Paige. David just received NASA's Exceptional Scientific Achievement Award, largely for his work as principal investigator on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment. Diviner has helped us learn about deposits of water ice on the moon, among other fascinating discoveries. We also connected via Skype with LADEE Education and Public Outreach Lead Brian Day. We switched to NASA's HD TV feed to witness the launch itself.
