During an Apollo moon landing, reflection panels were placed on the Moon. This allowed Earth-based astronomers to shoot laser beams at the Moon's surface to determine its distance. The reflected laser beam was observed 2.52 s after the laser pulse was sent. If the speed of light is `3.00 * 10^8` m/s what was the distance between the astronomers and the moon?
