Moon Gravity Map Looks Awesome

I know it’s unscience-like to gush over how trippy the Moon looks like in this visualisation of its gravitational field, measured by NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL). I’ve been informed that only stoned teenagers giggle at the psychedelic visual coolness of fractals, so I can’t get too excited about this map of the most precise ever microwave measurements via two spacecrafts but the spacecrafts are called Ebb and Flow so I give up. Are you reading this? EBB and FLOW! Aaaaaaaart.
