NASA’s GRAIL Provides Its First Video of Far Side of the Moon


NASA’s GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory), which we’ve been following, has provided its first video of the far side of the moon. You know, the part we can’t normally see and Hollywood blockbusters like to sling spaceships around when they need a boost. This isn’t the first video of that side of the moon, but GRAIL’s first, so keep in mind you’re not witnessing impressive history, but you’re witnessing something pretty cool in its own right regardless. The video, taken with the GRAIL’s MoonKAM, shows the North Pole to the South Pole, and shows us that all of the secret alien bases hidden on the other side of the moon aren’t there, or at the very least, packed up and went below the moon’s surface until the MoonKAM stopped trying to record them.
