Outer space fascinates learners...and this post from VOX provides 40 maps that are divided into sections:

* The Solar System

* Earth

* Space History

* The Moon

* Mars

* The Rest of the Solar System

* Beyond the Solar System

If you teach Earth Science many of these maps may be of interest. One map that many students may find of interest is takes a look at the universe based on the moon being 1 pixel. It is located at this link.

Psychedelic topographic Moon

Psychedelic topographic Moon | Communication design |

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, one of my favorite space probes ever, takes amazing high-res pictures of the lunar surface. But more than that, it can map the elevations of lunar features using shadows as a guide. Knowing the angles of the Sun, the Moon, and its viewing position, it can accurately gauge the elevations of the Moon’s surface as it takes image after image, orbit after orbit.
