A Breathtaking Lunar Panorama, Taken From China’s Moon Lander


It’s been more than 40 years since anyone’s actually stood on the moon, but thanks to the Chinese space agency and the magic of the internet, you can be virtually transported to Earth’s natural satellite.

This interactive panorama uses images from the Chang’e 3 lunar lander, which touched down on the moon in December. It was assembled by photographer Andrew Bodrov of Estonia (check out the fullscreen view for the Apollo astronaut effect). You can pan and zoom over the gray landscape, spotting craters and even our blue and green home planet hanging in the sky.

The story is too old to be commented.
