Craters and Slopes Near the South Pole of the Moon Adorn the Faces of a Rhombic Enneacontahedron

Zonohedrified Dodeca

The images on the faces of this polyhedron are based on information sent from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter, as seen at and tweeted by @LRO_NASA, which has been happily tweeting about its fifth anniversary in a polar lunar orbit recently. I have no idea whether this is actually an A.I. onboard the LRO, or simply someone at NASA getting paid to have fun on Twitter.

To get these images from near the Lunar South Pole onto the faces of a rhombic enneacontahedron, and then create this rotating image, I used Stella 4d:  Polyhedron Navigator. There is no better tool available for polyhedral research. To check this program out for yourself, simply visit
