Tour of the Moon

NASA has released a video tour of the Moon.

Take a virtual tour of the Moon in all-new 4K resolution, thanks to data provided by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft. As the visualization moves around the near side, far side, north and south poles, we highlight interesting features, sites, and information gathered on the lunar terrain.

    Part of me still thinks that knowing too much about the moon spoils the illusion about what it’s like.

      Lordy! What can I say…how can anyone “know too much” about the moon?
      Did you think it was made of…mozzarella?

          Thanks for cleaning up, Pete; didn’t see Kitty’s now-deleted comment but I’m guessing it was something really distasteful, like accusing me of voting ACT.

            Of course it wasn’t. You must be able to guess what it was, two words, five letters each, the second of which was alert. I can’t see why it was deleted, as people have said much worse and got away with it.

              I wouldn’t credit you with the sense to vote ACT.It’s the thinking person’s party.

            I referred to you as a troll, and as you have said some extremely offensive things, I cannot see why this was deleted.

    Includes some good shots of the lunar landers and other Apollo detritus. This hi-tech imagery will have sent the conspiracy industry into an orbit of despair

      Faked. All faked. Unless you can take them there and show them personally – all faked.
      I’d be quite happy to fire them off in a one way rocket to see for themselves but cost is an issue.

        There’s a lunar tick trolling around; hint – second comment down.

      I still can’t fully comprehend the courage it took to take the incredible risks that were involved in those landings, especially the first. You can train and test all you like but in the end it comes down to faith and hope everything will work right.

        It was lonely enough.
