This High-Res Moon Photo Was Made by a Self-Taught Astrophotographer. VIDÉO. La face cachée de la Lune dévoilée en images - Sciencesetavenir.fr. QuickMap. The Clementine UVVIS Ratio (false color) views of the Moon are built by creating ratio images using 3 of the 5 Clementine UVVIS camera bands and combining these into the red, green, and blue channels of a color image: Channel Ratio (band/band) Red = 750 nm/415 nm Green = 750 nm/950 nm Blue = 414 nm/750 nm The color ratio image product serves to cancel out the dominant brightness variations of the scene (controlled by albedo variations and topographic shading) and enhances color differences related to soil mineralogy and maturity.

The lunar highlands, mostly old (~4.5 billion years) gabbroic anorthosite rocks, are depicted in shades of red (old) and blue (younger). The lunar maria (~3.9 to ~1 billion years), mostly iron-rich basaltic materials of variable titanium contents, are portrayed in shades of yellow/orange (iron-rich, lower titanium) and blue (iron-rich, higher titanium).

On 18 June 2009, NASA launched the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) to map the surface of the Moon and collect measurements of potential future landing sites as well as key science targets.

@ LROC

After two and a half years in a near-circular polar orbit, LRO entered an elliptical polar orbit on 11 December 2011 with a periapsis (point where the LRO is closest to the surface) near the south pole, and the apoapsis (point where LRO is furthest from the surface) near the north pole. The increased altitude over the northern hemisphere enables the two Narrow Angle Cameras (NACs) and Wide Angle Camera (WAC) to capture more terrain in each image acquired in the northern hemisphere.

As a result, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) archive now contains complete coverage from 60°N to the north pole (except of course for areas of permanent shadow) with a pixel scale of 2 meters. The LROC team assembled 10,581 NAC images, collected over 4 years, into a spectacular northern polar mosaic. Un astéroïde frappe la Lune sous les yeux d'un astronome. Vous aimez nos articles ?

Pour la première fois, le monde était témoin des premiers pas de l’homme sur la Lune. Le 20 juillet 1969 concrétise la supérioté des Américains dans le domaine des vols spatiaux en pleine guerre froide. Plus de 40 ans après cet évènement historique, des centaines d’autres photos, la plupart ratées, émergent sur la Toile. Jamais utilisées dans le cadre de la promotion de la mission spatiale, elles sont aujourd’hui disponibles. Car au cours de leur voyage, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins et Buzz Aldrin ont pris 1470 photos manuellement avec des optiques grand-angles le tout sur neuf rouleaux de pellicules. A Unique View Of The Moon - LROC News System. A huge payoff from the longevity of the LRO mission is the repeat coverage obtained by the LROC Wide Angle Camera (WAC).

A Unique View Of The Moon - LROC News System

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)! However, the wide FOV also poses challenges for mosaicking and reconstructing lunar colors because the perspective changes plus- and minus-30° from the center to the edges of each frame.

Scientists Discover Volcanic Activity In Moon’s Tycho Crater

AsianScientist (Apr. 16, 2012) – Contrary to the popular theory, the moon had a lot of volcanic activity and was not a dead place, according to recent findings from India’s moon mission, Chandrayaan-1, and NASA’s lunar mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). These findings were published in the April 2012 issue of Current Science, a journal by the Indian Academy of Sciences. The report was jointly prepared by scientists from ISRO’s Space Application Center and Physical Research Laboratory (PRL), an ISRO affiliate, both located in Ahmedabad.

Exobiologie : la Lune ne serait pas nécessaire pour stabiliser la Terre. Depuis environ vingt ans, on pensait que la Lune avait probablement joué un rôle stabilisateur indispensable pour l’axe de la Terre , assurant un climat propre à l’évolution de la vie pendant des centaines de millions d’années. Il n’en serait rien, ce qui voudrait dire que les chances de trouver une vie sur une exoterre sont maintenant revues à la hausse.

En 1993, Jacques Laskar et ses collègues publiaient dans le journal Nature un article qui allait quelque peu refroidir des adeptes de Seti .

Asteroids orbiting the sun might temporarily become minimoons, following complicated paths around Earth for a time. Eventually, they would break free of Earth’s gravity – only to be immediately recaptured into orbit around the sun. Astronomers simulated the orbits of minimoons with a supercomputer and published their work in the March 2012 issue of the journal Icarus. Moons are defined as Earth’s natural satellites. They orbit around the Earth. Can you tell me the full moon names? Asteroids that are captured temporarily by Earth's gravity have crazy orbits around us, because they're pulled from all sides by the Earth, sun and moon.
