    It would be interesting to get a deeper insight into this system. The Earth & Moon spins and obits the Sun and the moon orbits the Earth. While the space probe orbits the moon at god knows what axis. The power on the probe limits the absolute power of the laser thus it must have a limited radius of beam once it leaves the Moon to the Earth. NASA’s ground station is either targeted by the probe and or tracked by the Earth station.I have a headache just thinking about the problems making that work

    @Anion Cation. All things we put in space must spin. One reason being, is that it would be roasted by the radiation from the sun, if it had only one side facing the sun at all times.
