NASA has released stunning new close-up pictures of Jupiter's largest moon.

The pictures of the moon Ganymede were taken by a NASA solar-powered spacecraft.

The pictures show details such as craters and what appear to be fault lines.

NASA scientists hope to use the images to learn more about the moon's composition, atmosphere, and radiation levels.

The spacecraft is expected to send more images later this week.
