Luna With Logograms

China’s Chang’e-1 lunar orbiter sent this image back to Earth, released by China’s space agency Tuesday.

I’m sure that the logograms next to this lunar landscape would give some people pause. I can imagine the sensation this kind of image would have caused a hundred or even thirty years ago.

Yet there’s a visual beauty in the combination of the stark lunar surface with the printed Chinese language, don’t you think?
