Well, almost.

On account of tidal locking, very few humans have seen any more than half the moon with their own eyes.

This composite visual stitches together high-resolution images (taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) of 98% of the Moon’s surface, showing an (almost) complete 360-degree rotation.

    Nothing we didn’t see 50 years ago. NASA’s annual budget? $19.3 bln. Makes the HSE look like value for money.

      “NASA’s annual budget? $19.3 bln.”

      it should go into capitalists’ pockets rather.
