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.

    wow incredible you can still make out all the structures from a hundred km hidden in plane sight, great stuff, I wonder if you could zoom in on Copernicus creator and get a visual off the (Castle) in detail or is it never a strait answer bless bro keep up the great vail of truth ! p.s behold a pale horse

    With that kind of detail, I am more interested in all the structures that exist on the moon. THOSE are far more interesting to me than just a high resolution (and EDITED) 3-D model of the Earth's moon. This video is just a fun little Public Relations blurb that is well made for the purpose that it is intended to fulfill. Now NASA, let's get to the marrow beneath the bone.

    The moon is our most intimate being, but we don't know much about the moon.
    I know what the moon looks like, but I don't know what it looks like, but I think it was born like this. It's a combination of debris from a collision between a primitive Earth and a Mars-sized planet, because there's hard sand on the moon. Hardened sand rises above 1500°C. Maybe it's because of the heat stroke. But the moon is so incredibly spherical that it's really a mystery.

    If the resolution is so high why do we not see the supposed Apollo 11 Landing (When we didn't have the technology) but the last Apollo 17 (When we barely had the technology to get to the moon) I still don't believe we ever went. We might have dumped some Stanley Kubrick Props on the moon made of Cardboard. FAKE!!!

    Talk about the structures on the moon, the ET vehicles, and bases...

  • My logic is a force to be reckoned with.

    I can't ignore the fact that the craters don't look like craters, the maths doesn't add up, the shallow depths compared to the radius of each of them are literally IMPOSSIBLE. so what is the moon? It could be solid titanium, the crust at least.

      "Moon's rotational motion is tidally locked with its translation around Earth"

      Michael 마익흘 Aronson Moon's rotational motion is tidally locked with its translation around Earth. It means that when is New Moon the so called "dark side" is fully illuminated... almost 14 terrestrial days or half Moon's day.

    • Michael 마익흘 Aronson
      Michael 마익흘 Aronson Month ago

      Because humans see things that are lit. If they showed the dark side, we wouldn't be able to see any details.

    I think Nasa is kinda responding to the growing theory that they never been to moon. Either they feel guilty or they want to keep lying to us :D . I also notice the nice cool music implemented with their video like the flat earthers uploads :D. Fishy if you ask me. But you wont ask me , you will take this video as 100% fact valid.

    • Michael 마익흘 Aronson

      "the growing theory"
      It's not.
      "they feel guilty or they want to keep lying to us"
      Or they took photos with a nice new camera and want to show us.
      "Fishy if you ask me. But you wont ask me"
      "you will take this video as 100% fact valid"
      Feel free to provide evidence that it's not real.

      haha, I'm no fan of trump but I must admit I'm quite excited that more money is going into space innovation/exploration due to his Space Force. Look at what was achieved when the US & Russia were racing against each other. I hope a new race takes place for the sake of exploration & advancement although there is the obvious worry that this could increase tension between nations & lead to war, fingers crossed that it doesn't!

      I think China has an unmanned lander & rover up there now, not sure if they are still functioning. They were not designed to last a huge amount of time but NASA's Curiosity & Opportunity (on Mars) lasted a lot longer than their mission called for. China's lander & rover:

    • Rob Smith
      Rob Smith Month ago

      I don't know about that. It's been sat there for over forty years, exposed to massive temperature changes, a heck of a lot of radiation & to be honest I don't know what power source it had but I suspect it would be depleted by now unless they overspec'd it bigtime lol.
