lunar probes:

what else does a lunar probe have other than a camera?

i need to know today becasue it is for aproject and it is due tomorrow

please help!!!!!!

You will find a description of some of the first lunar probes that actually landed on the moon at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/fact_sheets/rangsurv.pdf

"Probes" can also just orbit the moon (or planet or other satellite) while flying by or in orbit, without actually landing. In this case, many more experiments can be done, such as radar terrain mapping and probing beneath the soil. By this means, it was recently determined that there is a layer of ice two miles thick at the south pole of mars. Ice has also been detected in permanently shadowed crevasses at the poles of mercury and the Moon.

i can't seee the thing u sent me

i need to know what do probes have other then cameras

Do you have some sort of parental controls that prevent you from opening web site? Or is the problem that you cannot open .pdf (Adobe Acrobat) files? In either case, being blocked going to limit your ability to use the internet for researcch and homework help. I or someone else will be glad to tell you more about what lunar probes do if you tell me if you are interested in the kind that land or this kind that keep orbiting around the moon, or both.

I have already mentioned seismometers and soil samplers (for the landers) and radar probes (for the orbiters). Orbiting radar (microwave) probes can provide detailed 3-dimensional maps and also "see" what is below the surface.

oh...i think is that my computer can't open .pdf

is there anything else about the probes other than the things u gave me????

See if you can read this one. It is about both the moon and Mars, and discusses both orbiter and landers.
