NASA's procrastination

Dear Editor:Last July the Senate panel terminated all plans or dreams for a return trip to the moon. NASA should provide close-up pictures on the six landers and three rovers before any further plans of a return trip. America sent the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter on June 18, 2009. NASA has stated that this moon orbiter could take pictures within 3.3 feet of any object on the moon surface. But NASA has not provided any close-up pictures, even though this moon orbiter is only 18 miles above the surface of the moon. They have taken a few pictures at 18 miles, but too high to decipher anything. NASA should quit procrastinating or tell us the truth. -- Mike Sandoval, Downey
