About Diviner

The Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment is one of seven instruments aboard NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which launched on June 18 2009. It is the first instrument to create detailed day and night surface temperature maps of the Moon. Data from Diviner has helped identify potential ice deposits in the polar regions, map compositional variations on the surface and derive subsurface temperatures.
