Tour The Moon Courtesy of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter [Video]

This well narrated video offers an up close look at some of the moon’s more notable features, as well an interesting overview of how they came to be.

The above video comes to us courtesy of NASA and the recent scans and images produced by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). Check out the video for a fascinating tour of the craters, plateaus, and valleys of the moon. For more interesting images and data from the LRO check out some of our previous posts on the topic.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Wonderful informational video about our closest celestial neighbor. I love black and white video. I hope I’ll remember that the Jackson and Tycho craters are almost twins of each other…that is if I’m ever on Jeopardy, and there’s a “Lunar Twins” category. LOL!!
