Cosmic Cycles: The Moon | NASA Goddard

Cosmic Cycles: The Moon | NASA Goddard

The Moon is on full display in this section of Cosmic Cycles. The lonely and bleak landscape, covered by creeping shadows, is full of mystery and wonder. At the same time, there is beauty in the rocky gray terrain, and the crowning achievment of being the only other celestial body in our solar system that humans have step foot on. In this video you will see visualizations of the terrain, created from data obtained by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), high resolution images of fascinating craters taken by its camera system, and archival footage from the Apollo 17 mission.

“Cosmic Cycles: A Space Symphony" is a groundbreaking collaboration between acclaimed composer Henry Dehlinger, NASA, and the National Philharmonic, featuring a unique fusion of music and video in seven multimedia works on the Sun, Earth, Moon, Planets, and Cosmos. This transformative project takes the audience on a captivating voyage through the universe, showcasing the beauty and power of the marriage between music and science.
