NASA's Hubble Looks for Possible Moon Resources


Video: Aristarchus Site w/ Color Overlay - 3D Topography

Running Time: 42 seconds

A 3-dimensional topography where Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys data was overlaid on top of the modeling using Clementine and Apollo data of the Aristarchus Valley. A fly through of the valley starts with the Aristarchus crater and then Schroter's Valley rille. The false-color overlay is the ultraviolet-light views of Hubble.
