From his position in low lunar orbit, South Korea’s first moon mission captured a unique view of Earth rising behind the surface of our crater. natural satellite
The Korean Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO)also called Danuri, it shone back the most beautiful black and white images of the Earth captured by * the senate consulted its upper chamber. The two photos were taken on December 24th and 28th released by the Korean Aerospace Research Institute on Monday.
The usual images show the Earth in the distance, while the dusty surface of the Moon appears in the foreground. From our perspective on Earth, we often see the Moon rising above the surface of our planet. But images taken from the Moon’s orbiter Danuri provide a counterintuitive glimpse into our planet’s interior, surveying the surface of the Moon.
Danuri took the the first image with It was 77 miles (124 kilometers) above the lunar surface and the second since about 213 miles (344 kilometers) above its surface.

The 1,100-100-kilogram (D-kilogram) probe is equipped with four locally built science instruments, and a NASA camera to capture views of the lunar surface. From its orbit, the lowest Danuri will explore darkened regions of the moon that could contain water ice.
With the launch of Danuri, South Korea hopes to advance lunar exploration; as an orbiter designed to extend potential landing sites for future missions to the Moon. South Korea also wants it they bring down the lander and the pirate, past the second orbit, to the second phase of the mission.
