Hubble Prospects For Resources on The Moon


Recommended Posts

That's pretty amazing stuff.

It's not the first time HST has images the Moon, but the first in ultraviolet light. HST took some calibration images of the dark side of the Moon before. Copernicus, if I remember right. They were spectacular, but impractical because of the motion mentioned and the proximity. HST is designed to look and image much more distant objects.

I'm somewhat surprised they used it in this instance, but the UV camera would make it an interesting application. Cheers to NASA!
