About the Design

This two STL files demonstrate the differences between the near and far side of Earth’s Moon. The near side is smoother due to large lava flows that filled in many craters billions of years ago. Printed at their default size (8cm across) these models cover an area approximately 400km on a side at a scale of 5 million to one ( 1 cm = 50 km ) Data Credit : NASA/Goddard
