How to Land Safely Back on the Moon

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory recently tested the LIDAR sensors and algorithms that will translate raw data into a 3-D terrain map of the moon’s surface for future lunar-landing expeditions. This video describes the test and the technology used for autonomous landings and hazard detection.
