Fly me to the Moon: NASA releases stunning lunar tour

EVER dreamt of going to the Moon?

Pulling on your helmet, opening the hatch and walking in those historic footsteps of Neil Armstrong?

Well NASA is offering the next best thing after releasing a stunning virtual tour of our lunar neighbour.

The video, captured in 4k or Ultra HD format, takes viewers on an amazing trip around the near side, far side north and south poles and uncovers some of the Moon's more iconic landmarks.

The amazing tour was made possible after data was sent back from NASA spacecraft, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

That's one small step for man, one giant tour for mankind.
