Tsiolkovsky Crater Extreme Close-Up

Tsiolkovsky Crater Extreme Close-Up
Tsiolkovsky Crater Extreme Close-Up Extreme close-ups on the slopes of Tsiolkovsky Crater's central peak, as seen by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. We're seeing these scenes at nearly the full 0.5 meters (1.6 ft) per pixel resolution of the orbiter's powerful camera, allowing us to see right down to individual rocks. At the top, craters within craters within craters. Below, a field of boulders crying out for a geologist's hammer. NASA / GSFC / ASU / Bill Dunford
