OREANDA-NEWS Thanks to NASA, any smartphone user can get acquainted with the moonstone. Agency staff unveiled a model of the first-ever sample taken from the surface of Earth's satellite Neil Armstrong. 

The stone can be rotated 360 degrees with a touch view. As it was noted by NASA, this model has a good level of detail. Later, employees of the organization are going to open and improve access for all interested persons to the available samples of the Antarctic and lunar soil both for educational and scientific purposes. 

Scientists managed to create a 3D model using high-resolution images. The software created for this purpose uses computer vision in its work to provide the smallest details of volumetric graphics and X-ray rays, which help, without actually cutting the samples, to obtain a photo of the cross section.
