BEIJING, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- China says a full map of the moon captured by the orbiter Chang'e-2 is the
highest-resolution image of the entirety of the moon's surface published to date. The full coverage moon map was compiled from images taken by a stereo camera on the orbiter from heights of 60 miles (7-meter resolution) and 9 miles (1.4-meter resolution) over the lunar surface between October 2010 and May 2011, Liu Dongkui, deputy chief commander of China's lunar probe project, said.

The resolution in the images can show features as small as 23 feet (7 meters) across, China's state-run news agency Xinhua reported Monday.

Traces of previous U.S. Apollo missions were visible in the images, Yan Jun, chief application scientist for China's lunar exploration project, said.

China is set to launch the Chang'e-3 in 2013, the first Chinese spacecraft intended to land on the
surface of an extraterrestrial body, officials said.

Photos of possible landing sites (Sinus Iridum, or Bay of Rainbows), along with China's complete moon map, will provide information for the country's future moon landing missions, they said.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Image samples are available at official website of China's National Astronomical Observatories (NAOC).



The 6th image in the gallery and its annotations clearly show details of Apollo 11 landing: landing module with a size of 2 pixels, coordinates of the landing module, trace of lunar rover, zoomed-in figure of lunar rover route etc.

It is a smoking gun-like evidence that the Apollo moon landing was not fake. Should we take those conspiracy theorists to the moon and show them Apollo detritus and prove these things are not just put there yesterday?

  • Well clearly this footage is from the site they used on the surface of Mars to fake the moon landings.

  • So, You post a video showing no evidence, Then a picture of Apollo 17s landing that happened in 1973?

    Where is the Apollo 11 landing ? I got excited, Then you lied to everyone

    PS: its funny that even 43 years later all that has happened since the moon landing is someone is able to take a 2 pixel picture of the area it happened. in 1969 everyone thought we'd be living on the moon by 2012 lol.

    • @XjamesX
      Some years ago the Indian lunar orbiter showed much better images.

      Who needs photo evidence anyway? The premise that the landings were faked is seriously flawed in the first place: It was actually much riskier to *attempt* a hoax landing--never mind six hoax landings in a row!--than to attempt an actual landing.

      Wait until the Chinese bring back the flags, the commemorative plaques and other bits of memorabilia to display them in their museums to tell them.

  • the fact that its the Chinese that are proving that the US moon landings were not fake kinda sends a subtle message to us on whos gonna be the first ones back...

  • I don't see anything on these photos that changes my mind.

    Point the Hubble at it and then show me. CHINA? We're now believing *ANYTHING* they tell us.

    Pointless argument. We've never been there.

    Deal with it.

  • I don't understand, where's the lower part of the lunar module?
    Where's the Rover?
    I suppose you don't need to see the MARKS, you need to see the man made tools.

    I am not a conspiracy theory but as a matter of fact I don't believe ANYTHING that ANY Goverment or goverment-funded entity may say on ANY subject.

    Call me agnostic, not conspirationist. ;)
    So ... where's the Rover?

  • We have telescopes that can see distant galaxies, point one at the moon, and put this to rest already.
    Nice pictures BTW.

    • @mytwocents -Pointing a long range telescope at the moon would be like trying to read a paper from 3 feet away with binoculars. Getting quality resolution would be impossible.

    • @PyneOil
      Ok, well that would explain why it hasn't been done....what about something smaller?
      I still think this 'question' could be 'resolved' easily....

    • @mytwocents -I can't think of a single reason why, with all of the technological advances in reflection telescopes, we can't see high res imagery of the Moon from low Earth orbit. It is a bit strange.

  • No matter how many times you de-bunk conspiracies the believers just twist your proof into their warped view. "The Chinese are in on it because they want better relations with the USA blah blah blah...." Something along those lines. :p

  • "The resolution in the images can show features as small as 23 feet (7 meters) across"
    "Traces of previous U.S. Apollo missions were visible in the images"
    I'm sorry, but unless they made 7 meter big footsteps, i wouldn't call that proof of anything

  • Problem is, you can take the tin-foil hatters, fly them to the moon, and put them right next to the Apollo 11 remains, they still would not believe.
    Obviously, you would be deemed the Illuminati controlling their perceptual mind, and none of this is real. You know, like their lives.

  • We have always had proof. The moonbats will believe what they want no matter what proof you show them. Take them to the moon and show them the artifacts and they would find some excuse to shout conspiracy.

    • @MAKMAK Listen man, what most of us question is the bullshit images NASA threw around back then, the obvious phony images, voice recordings, etc. The astronauts had a camera hanging on their chest with no view finder and yet the pictures are centered on subjects consistently. If we question moon landings, the reason is NASA manipulation.

    • @MAKMAK If I had to guess at this point what happened, I would guess that NASA mixed as much real documentation as they could muster using antiquated technology of the 60's and 70's with phony bullshit images they produced in a studio; combining the two sources to create a marketable program to show on TV. I hope we did go to the moon; I just resent the bullshit NASA sold us at the time.
