WASHINGTON, DC.- New images from NASA?s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft show that the moon?s crust is being slightly stretched, forming small valleys?at least in some small areas. High-resolution images obtained by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera provide evidence that these valleys are very young, suggesting the moon has experienced relatively recent geologic activity.
Scientists using the camera aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter are acquiring stereo images of the moon in high resolution (0.5 to 2 meters/pixel) that provide 3-D views of the surface from which high resolution topographic m... Read Post
