What the Heck is That?

From mysterious swirls of pale dust to oblong craters and oddly-shaped ridges, numerous sights on the lunar landscape are subject to a wide range of inquiry. In this video, Dr. Noah Petro, the Project Scientist of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, examines some of these strange and unusual looking features on the Moon to answer the most profound question of them all: “What the heck is that?” The Moon is not made of cheese, but this production definitely is. Don't say we didn't warn you.
