The Blue and Yellow Moon

Using LRO data, we have created the topographic globe of the Moon as never seen before… in beautiful blue and yellow hues. You can travel on the Moon wherever you want to and discover not only craters, but also various multiring basins, ejecta patterns, winding lava channels, misterious hills, networks of wrinkle ridges, and tectonic scarps.

This is an exhibition exploring our relationship to the Moon through the lens of the sciences. From Galileo’s first observations to today’s powerful telescopes, this exhibition will include a broad range of man’s attempts at mapping and understanding lunar history.
