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.

    "created from data" in other words, an artists interpretation, not actual REAL footage. This is why more and more people are becoming fkat earthers because of the endless lies and fake images of nasa. I didnt even make it past the "interpretation" part. Either show me something real or get out of my face, nasa.

      Eddie, please.
      You're misunderstanding and misinterpreting the meaning of the word data perhaps through ignorance or perhaps intentionally but if you had any understanding of photography you'd know that even a box brownie was printing data to form an image.

    • Marcin Kienast
      Marcin Kienast Month ago

      Michael 마익흘 Aronson So you would prefer raw data from the orbiter instead of nice data visualization aka this video? I'm sure if you called NASA and asked they would give you the stream of ones and zeros... Using this logic one could say that every photo is fake cause is't only a interpretation of real photons. Lmao

    Looks like CGI if you ask me... "future expeditions to the moon"??? But they say the technology was lost and too complicated to get back there... where's the 'flag'?... the narrator states this is a "updated visualization" , what does this mean:
    "visualize |ˈvi zh (ə)wəˌlīz|
    verb [ trans. ]
    1 form a mental image of; imagine"...
    So it IS CGI...

      "Looks like CGI if you ask me."
      Nobody asked you.
      "they say the technology was lost and too complicated to get back there"
      Who said this?
      "the narrator states this is a "updated visualization" , what does this mean"
      It means that satellites have used 4K imagery to capture this data, whereas previous they had less powerful cameras.

      1. You have provided no reason as to why these images would have been edited.
      2. You have provided no reason to question the veracity of this video.
      3. Your opinion about the moon landing is absolutely worthless. Facts don't require your opinion.

    Why doesn't the Moon rotate? 🤔

    • Michael 마익흘 Aronson
      Michael 마익흘 Aronson Month ago

      "Not one theory is rock solid"
      What does this mean? What is required for a theory to become "rock solid"?

    • From the Stars above
      From the Stars above Month ago

      Michael 마익흘 Aronson : there are too many theories as to why they rotate and not one theory is rock solid. So i guess no one really knows.

    • Michael 마익흘 Aronson
      Michael 마익흘 Aronson Month ago

      Yes I know they rotate. I asked you WHY they rotate.

    • From the Stars above
      From the Stars above Month ago

      Michael 마익흘 Aronson: all planets naturally rotate but the moon does not. So does that mean the moon is unnatural? Maybe.

    • Michael 마익흘 Aronson
      Michael 마익흘 Aronson Month ago

      Yes, because the 4K cameras allow it to zoom that far, just like if you used a 4K camera to take a photo of the moon from your house, you couldn't zoom all the way in clearly.

      This is a composite photo, the first ever pictures of earth taken from space.
      Taken in 1947. 40 years before Photoshop and CGI.
      Does it look flat to you?
      Why do you need a complete shot of the earth to tell if it's a globe? Pretty obvious from this 'composite' that it's not flat don't you think.
      Or how about the famous Blue Marble. No composite and no CGI.

      Your obtuse refusal to believe isn't based on evidence, it is sadly based on confirmation bias.

      Michael 마익흘 Aronson ah, busted. Its the satellites that do the composite shots remember. They orbit the earth. You can not see the full earth from a satellite. There are no real photos of the full earth. Cgi. Maybe you need to look at every blue marble shot of the earth. Its laughable. The earth is a plane. I create cgi photos all day. You should get a copy of effects lab pro. I make better images than nasa.

      "Why cant the just put a camera on the moon"
      What would be the benefit? They have cameras on satellites. The satellites can take photos of the earth *and* the moon.
      "Common sense. Nasa is one big conspiracy"
      This isn't common sense. This is your unsubstantiated belief.
