Illustration for article titled Explore the Moons North Pole Without Having to Get Up

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has provided enough images for scientists to create an interactive mosaic of the moon's North Pole and surrounding region. The scale is 6.5 feet per pixel, which means that the mosaic covers an area equal to a quarter of the United States, which is 948,800 square miles (2,456,750 square kilometers). The mosaic was constructed with 10,581 pictures.


You can view the interactive mosaic here, which allows you to zoom and pan across the area.
