    No one, presently, sees the Moon rotate like this. That’s because the
    Earth’s moon is tidally locked to the Earth, showing us only one side.
    Given modern digital technology, however, combined with many detailed
    images returned by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), a high
    resolution virtual Moon rotation movie has now been composed. The above
    time-lapse video starts with the standard Earth view of the Moon. Quickly,
    though, Mare Orientale, a large crater with a dark center that is difficult
    to see from the Earth, rotates into view just below the equator. From an
    entire lunar month condensed into 24 seconds, the video clearly shows that
    the Earth side of the Moon contains an abundance of dark lunar maria, while
    the lunar far side is dominated by bright lunar highlands. Two new missions
    are scheduled to begin exploring the Moon within the year, the first of
    which is NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE).
    LADEE, which launched just over a week ago, is scheduled to begin orbiting
    the Moon in October and will explore the thin and unusual atmosphere of the
    Moon. In a few months, the Chinese Chang’e 3 is scheduled to launch, a
    mission that includes a soft lander that will dispatch a robotic rover.

  3. The fact is, the U.S. DID land on the moon. We simply did not have the
    video technology at the time to fake something like that. This is a known
    fact that conspiracy people tend to leave out. Let’s not forget that
    Americans could watch the moon landing on national TV which was taped live.
    You are doing a huge disservice to the men and women who have helped us
    achieve this goal. It’s something to be proud of.

  4. First, the Moon gets hit by meteors becasue it doesn’t have an atmosphere
    with which the meteors can „collide“ and burn (as is the case with Earth).
    Second, the asteroid belt (if this is what you mean by „asteroid field“) is
    between Mars and Jupiter. If Earth was to pass through the asteroid belt it
    would mean the planet went outside of its orbit. I say this because I have
    a question (for you): Do you get your info only from the bible???

  5. Las herencias demuestran lo que te han querido tus padres pero el impuesto
    sobre la herencia aclara que lo de familiares lejanos se produce por
    suerte.Detrás de cada incógnita y de las fórmulas se esconde un significado
    diferente.

  6. While there may be no ’new‘ LARGE craters, I’m sure there are millions of
    ’new‘ smaller ones on the far side of the moon every year. Every time we
    have a meteor shower & get to watch them burn up in the atmosphere, the
    Moon is being hit, albeit by very small sand & gravel sized particles. If
    the one that exploded over Russia had hit the moon instead of Our
    atmosphere there would have been another Large Crater on the moon. Whether
    it would be visible from Earth would depend on where it hit.

  7. There are buildings on the moon u fuking troll flouride head dont worry
    about spelling this is not a spelling b ever heard of type os or shorthand

  8. *What happened to the moon???*

    This is a sight that you will never see with your own eyes unless you’re an
    astronaut and extremely lucky. In case you did not know: We always see the
    same side of the moon. It faces us without ever turning in any way.

    This video sequence was put together from a series of photos shot by
    the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter – a NASA robotic spacecraft currently
    orbiting the Moon.

  9. look, I don’t know who you are, but the moon I see everyday since I was a
    kid is alot different from the moon I see in movies, or from videos from
    people in other continents… why? because of what MenziHD said, it takes
    the same amount of time to rotate as it does to orbit us. it’s also
    impossible to colonize the moon since there’s no atmosphere (but yeah if it
    was a big conspiracy [which is not] they could have lied about that)

  10. We always see the same side of the moon since Earth’s gravity long ago
    pulled it such that the slightly heavier side is always facing us (i.e. it
    became tidally locked). If the moon did rotate this is what you would see.

  11. its very simple, its systematic, and there very predictable. and every
    terrorist attack there behind it. the government funds al quida and America
    is occupied by big banks

  12. This just underscores why I enjoy my work on LRO. It is a great privilege
    to be a part of such a magnificent team of scientists and engineers.

  15. If you haven’t see this yet, take a look. It’s stunningly high quality.
    It’s amazing to see the back side of the moon too. It’s interesting how
    much more impact damage there is on the far side. Makes you wonder how many
    death blows the moon has taken for us.

  24. A huge payoff from the longevity of the LRO mission is the repeat coverage
    obtained by the LROC Wide Angle Camera (WAC). The WAC has a very wide
    field-of-view (FOV), 90° in monochrome mode and 60° in multispectral mode,
    hence its name. On the one hand, the wide FOV enables orbit-to-orbit
    stereo, which allowed LROC team members at the DLR to create the
    unprecedented 100 meter scale near-global (0° to 360° longitude and 80°S to
    80°N latitude) topographic map of the Moon (the GLD100)!

  26. Funny how the ‚dark‘ side is actually so much brighter, and our side is a
    lot darker (even when exposed to sunlight).. I guess that’s why many prefer
    the term ‚far‘ side instead of dark

  33. Good evening my friends

    You never saw our Moon as well: up close, in every detail – and turning! As
    revolves around its own axis, our natural satellite also revolves around
    the Earth and, therefore, always displays the same ‚face‘ for us, keeping
    the hides another – his famous (and wrongly named) ‚dark side ‚. But this
    animation NASA, created with images from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance
    Orbiter spacecraft orbiting satellite, allows us to glimpse this full
    motion! Two new missions should exploit it in the near future: one recently
    launched by NASA, examine the thin atmosphere moon from October. Another,
    Chinese, should soon send a robotic vehicle to explore its surface. Ah, the
    initial position of the video portrays our vision here on Earth.
