New Moon textrues
Fimally we have a good Moon textures! Data release from LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter), the device has a cool name LOLA (Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter). Before this there were silly small textures 2048x1024 for the entire Moon, or even fake ones. There are screenshots with a preview 30 MB texture. Later I will download the full-size map (30 GB), and the level of detail of the Moon surface will be 100 meters per pixel - three times better than that of the Earth!
