At today’s Royal Astronomical Society event on the Global Exploration Roadmap, speaker David Kring of the Lunar and Planetary Institute showed us a lovely video they have produced, giving a sweeping graphic of the lunar surface.
If you haven’t yet seen it, it’s worth three minutes of your time. I can’t embed it, so please go directly to the website here: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/nlsi/moonVideo/
PS Interesting tid-bit: the video is done in colour. The last scene shows the Earth in the background, and you can see the contrast.
