Tarqeq and Lunette

Tarqeq (Inuit for moon spirit) is a lunar mission to map the moon with a hi res laser camera system (similar to the one developed for inspecting the shuttle tiles) and radar. Lunette was originally planed to fly on India's Chandrayaan-1 moon probe. Unfortunately funding could not be guaranteed for lunette, and was dropped from the Chandrayaan program. Lunette will now be part of the Tarqeq mission, and is based on the CanX 4&5 Nanosattelite.
