NASA Releases 4K Video Of The Moon Ending The Moon Landing Conspiracy




NASA has just released a 4K video tour of Earth’ moon and the footage will make your jaw drop. Even though Earth’s moon can be viewed in unprecedented detail from Earth, NASA has recently released a video filmed in 4k showing off the surface of the moon in unprecedented close-up detail, and the video will definitely take your breath away.


How can we describe the video footage? Well, it’s stunning. It’s mesmerizing. It’s Fresh. It offers an entirely new way of exploring the surface of the moon, and you can see all of the most important and prominent features of the Earth’s satellite in the stunning video footage.


The footage dubbed as “virtual tour of the moon” in breathtaking 4K has been collected by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft over a span of nine years.


“The tour visits a number of interesting sites chosen to illustrate a variety of lunar terrain features,” Ernie Wright of NASA’s Space Visualization Studio explained in a blog post. “Some are on the near side and are familiar to both professional and amateur observers on Earth, while others can only be seen clearly from space.”


Wright explains that this recently published video is, in fact, an updated version of another one released 7 years ago, in 2011. Despite the fact that the camera path may be the same, the data that has been gathered in 7 years has made it possible for NASA to create a far more incredible and detailed presentation of the moon.




The recently released 4k video displays a number of the moon’s features, combining colors that highlight important or noteworthy data to make sure you not only enjoy the view but learn something new. One of the most interesting parts of the video is when we have the chance to fly over the Tycho Crater, a lunar formation said to be around 100 million years old.

The most interesting part occurs when you think you’ve seen the best part. 


The video zooms in unprecedently, focusing on Tycho Crater’s mesmerizing central peak which features an enigmatic 100-meter-wide bolder at the summit, “the origins of which are still a mystery,” the video’s narrator says, adding to the suspense.

  1. Its a "boulder" not a "bolder"

    1. Yes, and I thought than spelling was easier than sending a spaceship around the moon. Obviously I was wrong.

    2. There is only one Hohmann Transfer solution for any given set of launch conditions, but language mutates like a bastard, and the "spellcheck gotchas" don't help.

    3. And I thought "that" had a "t" at the end...

    4. Wow, the irony of all the mistakes... pointing out the mistake. LOL We should all look in the mirror before we criticize. ;)

  2. The mooxers will simply claim this is all CGI directed by Kubrick, produced by Disney, for NASA (paid for by the Illuminati and the Reptilians). --> Sent on my ReptoiPhone from our double super secret base on the dark side of the holographic Moon. Don't tell anybody.

    1. Well, at least we would know how crazy they are, given that Kubrick has been dead for almost 20 years.

  3. For those who don't want to watch the entire video, the landing site shows up around 3:35

  4. Nasa used 'Pixar' to produce this imagery,no doubt....lol

    1. Nah, If Pixar had dome it we would have seen Buzz Lightyear planting a flag on the surface.

  5. Did he actually say 'Perpetual darkness' or 'Perpetual light'? seriously?
    sigh.... who wrote this stuff? Obviously not someone that can claim being an astronomer.

    1. the lunar poles are paradoxical places that feature both permanently dark and permanently sunlit sites — depending on whether they're the bottom of a crater/trench or the peak of a mountain

  6. Does your country suffer from people who think the Moon Landings were a Hoax? People who believe the Democratic Fallacy that their scientific ignorance is as valid as your scientific knowledge? The good people at Clavius Base have compiled debunking information arranged by topic!

  7. Oh, the geeks are at it again! Let's point out all the grammar and spelling errors because, "hey I'm smarter then everyone else!" because I'm a geek! Hope it makes you feel better about your social misfit selves.

  8. So..how is it explained that humans could pass safely through the Van Allen radiation belt?

    1. No body seems to care about issue 1, much less the other 500.

    2. "Charged particles are damaging to human bodies, but the amount of damage done can range from none to lethal, depending on the energy those particles deposit, the density of those particles, and the length of time you spend being exposed to them.

      In the case of the Apollo missions, the solution was to minimize the second two factors. We can’t control the energy of those particles, though they can be large. The density of the Van Allen belts is well known (from sending uncrewed probes through them), and there are hotspots you can definitely avoid. In particular, the innermost belt is a rather tightly defined region, and it was possible to stay out of it for the trip to the Moon. The second belt is much larger, and harder to avoid, but there are still denser regions to avoid. For the Apollo trips, we wanted to send the astronauts through a sparse region of the belts, and to try and get through them quickly. This was necessary in any case; the crafts had to make it to the Moon in a reasonable amount of time, and the shorter the trip, the less exposure to all sorts of radiation the astronauts would get."

  9. If this discussion was "science" or "exploration", question would be welcome. Ridicule, shame, insult is the mark of a myth supported by "church ladies" and religious kooks.

  10. Nice that NASA LRO over 9 yrs. ago was able to pick up the lapels left on the moon in English, so we can see just what the debris is - might have missed it. I've been working on "Remote Viewing" of the moon for several month and I've found the 1st difficulty is getting rid of the views implanted in my mind by "stunning" shit like this. The dramatic music is the sure tip-off a a load of crap coming.
