Rotab Dates are a wonderful, all natural product created by NASA for their experiments to see if using the gravitational pull of the moon can give off enough thrust to get a spacecraft to the outer space. The Rotab dates are a product of a lunar orbiter, which was studying the moon at the time of this experiment, and is now retired.
After studying the moon for a few years they realized that it did have a gravity pull, but there were also several moons orbiting the earth, and they were all moving away from the moon, with one of these moons being closer in orbit to the earth than the moon itself. The moon was pulled toward the earth and pulled back out of its orbit, causing an Earth wobble which caused all of the orbiting moons to come together and go back to where they were originally orbiting.
These days, they have found that the moons are all doing this simultaneously and all have different gravitational pulls on the earth. They can’t just change their gravitational pulls on the earth like some would think they could, because the gravitational pulls are different from one moon to the next, so they had to develop the Rotab Date to take the various pulls into account. This way, they can be sure that a lunar probe going to the moon would be successful, and it would not crash into another moon.
This new method of predicting the success or failure of a lunar probe can allow NASA and other space agencies to make the necessary preparations to land a spacecraft on the moon in the future. They can also use this system to find out what is wrong with their space craft and then figure out how to correct it.
Since the lunar orbiter did not have a video camera, there was no way for them to actually see what was going on with the moon. They would not be able to make corrections themselves, since it would take too long to do it.
NASA has developed this new system in order to be able to better plan for future missions to the moon. Now they can watch how the moon is moving, and they can learn about it by watching the video and by actually going to the moon.
Of course, they need to know what the moon looks like at that moment. If they are able to record images of the moon and the planets and other objects that may be orbiting it in advance of any future mission to the moon, they will be able to tell if there are debris or other objects on it that they will need to avoid when they land. on it.
The moon has been around forever and it will be here for billions more, so it makes sense to study it before sending people to it and taking pictures of it. So many discoveries can be made by studying it before we send anyone to it.
