About the artwork

Taken between November 2009 and February 2011, this picture of the hidden side of the moon was shot with the American Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) probe belonging to NASA and in orbit around the moon since the month of June 2009. Flying over the Moon’s surface at an altitude of around 50 km it is responsible for creating its high-resolution mapping and studying the polar regions. The primary objective is to identify future landing sites, but it has also made numerous geological discoveries, such as a hole on the hidden side as well as a bridge, to cite only the most spectacular of its discoveries. The second objective of the mission is to discover any potential ice reserves at the base of the craters that are dotted over the lunar poles. In order to create this image, the orbiter is endowed with two cameras. The WAC (Wide Angle Camera) provides resolution from around 100 metres while the NAC (Narrow Angle Camera) can capture details from half a metre away. These cameras enable spectacular images of the surface to be created, allowing us to discover new landscapes.
