Apparently those pictures were taken from 2.5lakh (250,000) km away by the TMC which has 5m res. I doubt they would be much better than the ones we've seen taken from down here.

IMO, the real pictures should be taken post Nov 8th and so we can look forward to them being released post November 15th. We do not know if ISRO will be as open as JAXA or as secretive as the Chinese lunar probe guys..

Cool it dude!! In time! In time! What's eating yer socks? Have yer bacon and sausages with farm-fresh fried eggs, buttered toast, baked beans and pineapple juice in the meanwhile! It may be up by then.


Alternatively they must've found my Moon tower that I showed in the thread on Uncensored NASA Moon Images and are now busy brushing it away with software provided by NASA!!
Seriously! What's going on??

Right! It's no big deal showing the images of the Moon from a quarter of a million kms away! Let's wait for the images beamed back from IO, 7000km away and then from the actual planned orbit of 100km.

Cheers!

Can anyone help me understand why the polar regions are 30 degrees cooler than the dark side of the moon?

I would have thought that the dark side should be the coolest region, the poles still might get a tiny amount of insolation.

The "Dark Side" is "Dark" with respect to us here on Earth. It does get its quota of sun's radiation during the moon's revolution around the earth.

Correct me if I am wrong!

Ahh I see, so its the residual energy from insolation.

I wonder if there is a temperate zone constantly on the border between light and dark. Could be a decent place for a base.

There is no temperate zone (in the sense of a fixed girdle of land on a great circle going through the poles). As far as the sun is concerned, it sees, and bakes, the entire moon's surface once within a period of one month.


Of course, a moving girdle exists, taking about a month to travel around the lunar globe. So a moving base on wheels can be an idea.

ACH of course your wrong
EVERYONE knows there is a "Dark Side"


Oh wait... that would be the Force... Dark Side of the Force ...


As to the Moon there is NO DARK SIDE...

I find it difficult to believe that with all the threads on here that some still have trouble with this...

Here is a diagram... notice the direction of sunlight...



It just shows how hard it is to break trough that conditioning

To help visualise better that there is NO DARK SIDE, here is a modified version of the diagram posted by Zor, with a red spot on the surface of the moon. Notice that the spot, even though always facing the earth, goes through a complete cycle of lunar day & night in one month as the moon revolves around the earth (and rotates in about the same time)

You had almost made my heart skip a beat there, calling to question my "astronomical" skills, till I came upon the second and the third lines.
