I wonder how much of this image was fabricated to hide what the dark side of the moon really shows:



Quote:
The topography of the Moon referenced to a sphere with a radius of 1737.4 kilometers. Data were obtained from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) that was flown on the mission Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). The color coded topography is displayed in two Lambert equal area images projected on the near and far side hemispheres.
