the japanese aerospace exploration authority put up some of the movies taken by kaguya, their lunar orbiter, on their website. due to, shall we say, my particular portfolio, these pieces of footage are of particular interest to me -- they're stunning, quite breathtaking, and somehow stately even at dramatically-reduced resolution. the camera moves slowly, at a luxurious and processional pace. i marvel that this is the first major lunar exploration expedition since the apollo missions more than four decades ago.
