I stopped by to visit the folks at McMoon, more widely known as the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project: moonviews.com/ More about the project below, but one of the cool parts is that the images are being restored in an old McDonald's at NASA Ames Research Center. Also note the nice geek touches like empty pizza boxes :)

This project, LOIRP, is recovering decades old data, digitizing data from the Lunar Orbiter mission of the 1960's, thus bringing up the highest resolution data of the Moon from that time. This will greatly complement all the great Moon missions of this time, including the upcoming Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission launching in two weeks!
