Experience

It's almost as if they've never actually done it before . . . or have they?

Re: Is there another kind of camera?

My thoughts exactly.

Meanwhile in pedants' corner I assume we must be talking about a polar or near polar orbit. if so which pole will they be photographing? The article refers to the pole's craters (pole's = singular possesive). Apparently there are two poles on the Moon so should it not refer to the poles' craters (plural possive)?
