More Awesome:

via Japan’s Kaguya – more HD YouTube moon horizon low-angle shots here.

(Um, so why don’t we have a bunch of low earth orbit satellites beaming down shots like this of our lovely planet? I’d pay for a dedicated cable channel with an HD feed of that.)

And then we have the Earth and our Moon. And Jupiter and its moons.  As seen from Mars.

Please review your tax dollars at work – 50 years of space exploration.

    As someone who grew up in a space-race city, which was not unlike “Mad Men” except more nurd and less BJ, I like your spin on what is still spinning out there. Just remember that the courage that got us to the moon is mostly dead or very old right now, and the google guys aren’t up to the task of replacing it.
