Chinese experts Monday announced that the country's space scientists had completed the world's highest-resolution three-dimensional map of the moon.
The map, covering the whole surface of the moon, was made based on image data obtained by a charge-coupled device (CCD) stereo camera carried by the Chang'e-1, China's first lunar probe. The map's spatial resolution -- measured by the distance of two features within an image that can be clearly defined -- is 500 meters.

This Earth will eclipse the Sun in two days time. Ironically on Sunday. But not everyone thinks it will be a Super Sunday.
The team behind China's first lunar probe satellite, Chang'e 1 will be on the edge of their seats. Because this will be a big test of their probe's solar energy capacity. Not so much the ability to convert energy. But to store this precious resource.
Theyve been here before though. The probe was plunged into darkness on February 21, by a full eclipse. It came through that test unscathed, running on battery power for two hours.
Sunday's eclipse will be longer. Change 1 will have to rely on batteries from 3:35 am. to 6:44 am while its starved of solar sustenance.
