Is that the texture of the moon?

No, it's a texture of the Apollo asteroid 162173 Ryugu.

I'm good when it comes to Physics, Algebra, Relativity, Space, and SpaceEngine. But I could still use a LOT of help on the things I still don't know. So I hope I get a lot of help on how all that works, here!

SInce (216) Kleopatra has 2 satellites, seems pretty elongated, and it was the subject of a recent paper (A revised shape model of asteroid (216) Kleopatra) I thought I could give it a try. For the original mesh, though, Caltech/JPL pages say "Permission to reproduce may be required".

A newer texture for Ryugu, and a short video flying over Ryugu showing the equatorial crater and the surrounding bulge.

Maybe this is a stupid question but what can i do with the new texture for Ryugu, i assume it doesn't work as is with Space Engine.

Space Engine doesn't allow uploading of textures in anyway similar to how you can export textures, as a stand alone program but there are third party programs that can manage it. Often times users will want to recreate new discoveries in the universe simulation, such as Saturn's moon that looked like a ravioli. I guess lately I've been spending a lot of time trying to import things to Space Engine, I should realize that that is not for everybody.
