Have you ever wondered how the dark and bright regions of the Moon formed? In this video, you will learn how they emerged from an ancient Moon that was surrounded by a magma ocean. The video was produced by Professor Timothy Swindle at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, University of Arizona, and is part of the LPI-JSC Center for Lunar Science and Exploration.
The Cassini/VIMS team, based at LPL, has created an unparalleled map of Titan, which is a culmination of nearly 3 decades of effort by a diverse team of dedicated people. This video commemorates our achievements—technical and artistic—and conveys in some small way the emotions felt by the group of dedicated people who worked on VIMS and Cassini-Huygens.
