Thanks for the update, Pradeep !

do you have any information when the first data from the Terrain Mapping Camera (TMC) which I am particularly looking forward to smile.gif will be released ?

there is a preview of TMC data published at the ISRO site (link) which looks very very promising (the announced 5-meter-per-pixel near-global DEM would be by far the best topographic map of the moon yet with resolution two times higher than SELENE/KAGUYA DTM and more than ten times higher than LOLA DTM ...


No idea so far on a data release date.

Pradeep

by the way, there is yet another Chandrayaan-related paper on arXiv today
Extremely high reflection of solar wind protons as neutral hydrogen atoms from regolith in space

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

This news article sounds interesting:

ISRO has stated recently, that the voluminous data gathered by Chandrayaan-I would be made available to the public by the end of the year 2010. The data would be eventually split into two seasons with the first season going public by the end of 2010 and the second going public by the mid of 2011. The data would contain rare pictures of the moon and also data from the chemical and mineral mapping of the lunar surface.


Anyone more details on this upcoming end-of-2010 public data release ?

Here it is:

I've checked it out and currently there's only browse versions of the data available, and those at pretty high JPEG compression, but it's enough to have some 3D fun with. Remember that TMC, like HRSC, did simultaneous stereo, so every spot it imaged on the Moon can be seen in 3D with minimal effort.

I've been waiting for a long time for this one smile.gif

(Still courious about the Kaguya Terrain Camera data though which is still not (or only partially) released to date)

Interesting research from LRO & Chandrayaan-1: evidence that volcanism has occured as recently as 100 million years ago in Tycho crater.

Most observers seem to feel that the apparent volcanism is really impact melt. But we will have to see what other studies show.
