The unmanned LADEE probe is set to lift-off from the Wallops rocket facility on the US east coast at in few minutes from now.

 

Its $280m mission is to investigate the very tenuous atmosphere that surrounds the lunar body.

 

It will also try to get some insights on the strange behaviour of moondust, which appears on occasions to levitate high above the surface.
