Mirror on the Moon?

I am addicted to a BBC 2 programme on for 3 nights called STARGAZING LIVE hosted by Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain
Very feeble attempt at star photography - must try harder!
Did you know - we left a mirror on the moon, and every night - someone in Texas (well maybe not an actual person you understand) shoots a laser at it to determine how far and fast the Moon is moving away from Earth (drifting away 3.8cm per year by the way in case you won't be able to sleep at night)

My pretty much one and only claim to fame is that I know Brian Cox. Just call me Friend of the Stars.
