Additional Information

A peculiar arrangement of floor versus inner slopes is noticeable in the bright raycraterlet on the eastern part of Landau's rim. The pinpoint coordinates of this raycraterlet are: LON -114.88, LAT 42.48 (8 M/PIX). Add these coordinates at the lower part of the LRO's ACT-REACT Quick Map, hit the RECENTER button, and enjoy! - DannyCaes Jun 13, 2011


Lev Davidovich Landau (January 22, 1908 – April 1, 1968) was a prominent Soviet physicist of Jewish origin who made fundamental contributions to many areas of theoretical physics. He received the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physics for his development of a mathematical theory of superfluidity that accounts for the properties of liquid helium II at a temperature below 2.19K (-270.96°C).
