Laser ranging retroreflectorThe lunar laser ranging retroreflector (LRRR) experiments to define the motion of the moon in its orbit are described, and the properties of the LRRR arrays and ground-station operation are discussed. It is concluded that primary benchmarks on the lunar surface are provided by the Apollo 11 and 14 arrays, and the placement of the Apollo 15 reflector.
