View the Moon in Gigapan

Originally pointed to from one of our space geek crushes (the NASA Lunar Science Institute), take a few seconds and scroll through the amazing GigaPans in detail of the lunar environment taken from Apollo landing sites!

What is GigaPan, you ask? From their site:

"GigaPan consists of three technological developments: a robotic camera mount for capturing very high-resolution (gigapixel and up) panoramic images using a standard digital camera; custom software for constructing very high-resolution gigapixel panoramas; and, a new type of website for exploring, sharing and commenting on gigapixel panoramas and the detail our users will discover within them."
