First interactive mosaic of lunar north pole

Scientists have created the largest high resolution mosaic of our moon’s north polar region. The six-and-a-half feet (two-meters)-per-pixel images cover an area equal to more than one-quarter of the United States. The entire image measures 931,070 pixels square — nearly 867 billion pixels total. A complete printout at 300 dots per inch — considered crisp resolution for printed publications — would require a square sheet of paper wider than a professional U.S. football field and almost as long.
