Tour of the Moon in 4K

  • Published on Apr 9, 2018
  • 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.

    So everything is high detail except the part we already visited? That one is mid of blurry. But hey, maybe is a coincidence (no is not).

    What tha Heck? The AstrologyNots spent all our Tax Dollars sending Men to the Moon 50 years ago to Collect the same data they are still collecting today. So they pinpointed the vehicle on the moon finally after all these years ... finally flatearthers are demanding people start taking a look and start questioning reality. But NASA keeps putting it on strong. Deceit. America does not have to tell the truth and nothing close to the truth ... SECRETS are made to be kept.

    So, where are the pictures of the far side of the moon when it's lit by the sun? Did I miss them? Seems the so-called 'dark side' of the moon is in reference to our perception here on earth, from which one side of the moon constantly faces earth. Therefore it stands to reason the side facing away from the earth will be lit by the sun. After a while, nearly the whole surface will be as bright shining as the full moon for the satellite taking the pictures.

    Dear NASA: You already know mankind has never set foot on the Moon before in the first place, and now you're continuing to perpetuate this bizarre political lie by making people think they can somday take a trip around the thing...
    So if you are not somehow already aware of the fact of the matter, then here's the bet: Humans, including any other animals and plant life, can't survive that far away from Earth. You blast some living thing - anything - off from here to the Moon and it will arrive there dead (DOA). Plain and simple.
    But maybe you really don't know that. Anyway, give it a try. And please BE HONEST with the public when you explain "why" people and other forms of life keep passing away on their way to the Moon. Don't lie and tell everyone it's due to mechanical failure.
    Anyway, I made this same bet offering to Mr. Elon Musk regarding his lofty ambitions to colonize Mars, telling him that only a spaceship full of corpses will ever successfully land on the red planet, but he hasn't responded back to me. So now the bet is being offered to you. Go ahead, have at it...

    Why is it that even official NASA sources are getting dumber and more lazy with their content? Please take the effort to at least pronounce such common, specific names correctly. If one is so confident in their incorrectness about something so common and easy to fix, how can anyone take anything else said seriously? That isn't to discount the actual science and work done for these videos and content, but it deeply saddens me to see such intellectually retarded people holding such positions and only making everyone dumber. If even the NASA narrators can't get such simple things right, why would anyone expect anyone else to; if they can't do the job properly, they should be replaced. If they don't know what they're talking about, they should learn it or be replaced with someone who does; It's not rocket science. Aside from all that though, the LRO is a fantastic piece of equipment and I hope it brings us much more data in the coming years. The boulder on Tycho crater gets me every time.

    Great video, but a missed opportunity to not have rendered it in 60 fps, because the gliding across the surface movements don't look very smooth and sharp. Only the still, and slow motion sections are fabulously sharp now.
