NASA Video Gives A Tour Of The Moon (VIDEO)

Dark Side Of The Moon

Don’t have $155 million to buy a ticket to the moon? Worry not, because NASA’s got the next best thing: a video tour of the planet free of charge!

In the video, a narrator highlights key features including craters, astronaut trails, and the mysterious dark side of the moon.

“Altough the moon has remained largely unchanged during human history, our understanding of it and how it has evolved over time has evolved dramatically,” the video’s info section states. “Thanks to new measurements, we have new and unprecedented views of its surface, along with new insight into how it and other rocky planets in our solar system came to look the way they do.”

Back in February, NASA’s twin Grail probes used a camera, called MoonKam, took the world’s first-ever video footage of the dark side of the moon. The video was taken primarily as an educational project for middle schoolers, but reveals ground breaking images of the rugged terrain.
