Although it has been 40 years since man first stepped on the moon, ASU professor and lunar expert Mark Robinson says it's a surprise there is no human activity there now.

Robinson is leading the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter team, an effort to map the surface of the Moon. The findings will help NASA pick a location for  a return visit.
