KAGUYA satellite captures HD Earthrise
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's (JAXA) KAGUYA satellite that we talked about before has now turned its HDTV eye back towards the big blue marble that is Earth. The HD eye in the sky has recast one of the most famous photos ever, the "Earthrise" captured during the Apollo 8 mission in 1968. If you liked the initial footage from this satellite, you know the drill: click the read link to check out HD still frames and ED-like 480 x 720-pixel versions of the HD "Earthrise" and "Earthset" captures. Okay, JAXA, we'll accept the missing audio track, but make with the full-HD movies of this footage!
