  • The Clementine mission has provided the first comprehensive set of high-resolution images of the south pole region of the moon. Within 5� of latitude of the pole, an area of an estimated 30,000 square kilometers remained in shadow during a full lunar rotation and is a promising target for future exploration for ice deposits. The Schr�dinger Basin (320 kilometers in diameter), centered at 75�S, is one of the two youngest, least modified, great multiring impact basins on the moon. A large maar… CONTINUE READING
