Fantastic Moon Videos
NASA has been doing some 3D mapping of the Moon's south pole, an area where we might find hidden water ice. They have made some great 3D animations as a result. There is lots of good science at the NASA site, but the videos are really stunning. I like the lunar south pole flyby myself (above). The full press release is at NASA's exploration pages, the Bad Astronomer has his own musings (and his favourite video), and a nice story with more videos is at New Scientist.
