A virtual flight over the "Peak of eternal light", an area of the lunar south pole that is illuminated throughout the entire lunar day.
The three-dimensional lunar surface featured in the movie was produced by applying a novel shape-from-shading method simultaneously to five images taken under diverse illuminations by the Advanced Moon Imaging Experiment (AMIE) on board ESA’s SMART-1 spacecraft. This model was originally developed for research purposes before being converted into a movie for AEC, Austria.
