See the Artemis 3 landing site at the moon’s south pole in new NASA photos

NASA has captured the moon’s south pole in stunning detail as scientists learn as much as possible about the shadowy region before the Artemis 3 spacecraft takes astronauts there in the future.

The images were collected by a NASA-operated hypersensitive optical camera called ShadowCam. The instrument is carried around the Moon by the Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO), also known as Danuri, built by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KRI). The craft, carrying five Korean science instruments, launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in August 2022 and entered lunar orbit the following December, when ShadowCam began imaging the moon.
