(CNN) -- A lunar satellite in the works will photograph some of the most secluded spots on the moon, including dark craters thought to contain ice and a strange mountain where the sun always shines.
The European Space Agency spacecraft will make the most accurate maps ever of the moon, according to project scientists. The $91 million probe is expected to launch early next year.
Besides producing a three-dimensional model of the lunar surface, the SMART-1 mission will focus its attention on the mysterious south pole region, including the Peak of Eternal Light, which is perpetually bathed in sunlight."
