I saw this as a poster at the Lunar Planetary Science Conference today. This version is smaller, but more useful.

Thanks subby!

Crazy.

Zooming into that's like zooming into a fractal. With no sense of scale. it could go on forever.

I picked the area labeled "Byrd" and zoomed in until I couldn't zoom any more. The craters had craterlets, and if I was standing on the surface, the craterlets would have micro craters.

All the craters have craters down to the level that you need a microscope to see.

Dude...what if space is just one giant crater and galaxies are craterlets and we live on a piece of dust inside the craterlet?

Well our Intrepid mapper finally came back to bring us her first hoof cartography.

Enough about the 76ers; can we talk about space?

First thing I did was bring up a list of all the Apollo landing coordinates. None of them go this far north:( Fortunately, NASA has LRO imagery of the landing sites.

I fully expected this to have devolved into a KSP thread by now.

TFA bookmarked.

I started zooming and went NW. Quickly noticed a crater named Niepce. Presumably that was after one of the inventors of photography so I stayed on that for the rest of the playing around.

It only shows one side. Where's the other side?!
