NASA has just revealed stunning images of the Moon taken by the twin probes GRAIL, shortly before it crashed into the natural satellite.

Ebb and Flow Probes had completed their mission to know the internal structure of the Moon and crashed on its surface on December 14.

Their cameras imaged within 10 kilometers of the lunar surface and crashed around 14:28 hours of California.

The probes measured the gravitational field of the visible moon face with a precision 100 times higher than current and 1,000 times higher in the case of the far side of the satellite.
