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.
    Music Provided By Killer Tracks: "Never Looking Back" - Frederick Wiedmann. "Flying over Turmoil" - Benjamin Krause & Scott Goodman.

      Now if only you can explain how we covered the rocks with microscopic agglutinates that never appear on earth rock, only rocks exposed to the vacuum in space... And no, Surveyer _MAYBE_ could have brought back a few grams at best, but not 800 lbs worth.

    "A VIRTUAL tour CREATED from data collected from etc", "visualisation". Their words. Not real imagery, not actual footage, pure cgi animation. Considering the amount of money COLLECTED by the American taxpayer, they should have done better.

    I`ll just put it here ... A Clock shaped( chambes on same axis within oposite sides ) sterling engine that would be connected to any kind of engine to create electricity other than solar panels . I see tons of problems with this including the price and lunar dust issue but go bite this one internet ;)

    Amazing how you zoomed in 3D to show that crater with a mountain inside with a boulder resting on top as clear as day then it went to the Apollo 17 site just giving a birds eye view and not very clear??? Hmmmmm strange, or???

    Since we have new technology, why can't we see the dark side, since it is illuminated by the sun despite we, from earth can not view? Interesting is also the ability to view the surface in more detail than as if we have no zoom lenses capable to show. Why? Why continuing view by tecnical, and mathematical models and not by the reality?

    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.
