The Only Pathologist On the Moon
WAC image processed by Richard Evans
Rick Evans, a pathologist in Massachusetts and an active contributor to LPOD, processed two LRO Wide Angle Camera (WC) images showing the floor of Chuck Wood
Note: I leave Saturday morning for the European Planetary Science Conference in Rome. I am very pleased that Maurice Collins, with some help from Rick, will produce LPODs through Oct 1 when I return. They will feature more of the WAC images that they have been pioneers in learning how to process, but also welcome other Earth-based images. Thanks, Maurice & Rick!
The elongated crater and the vertical band of lightness near it are both artifacts of processing. The WAC images have many distortions in geometry and brightness that are still being worked on by amateur lunar scientists.
