Stunning Video of the Surface of the Moon from Cameras Manned by UC San Diego Engineering Students

On Dec. 17, NASA crashed two spacecraft equipped with cameras manned by UC San Diego students on the surface of the moon after they had successfully completed their science and outreach missions and ran out of fuel.
Before the impact, one of the spacecraft's cameras captured this stunning video of the surface of the moon's far side, from an altitude of about 6 miles.

Learn more about the spacecraft and the role UC San Diego engineering students played during the mission here.
