Did you know there are satellites orbiting the moon? Several of these satellites are a part of a JAXA (the Japanese version of NASA) project called SELENE (or Kaguya as it is known in Japan). The SELENE project was launched "to obtain scientific data of the lunar origin and evolution and to develop the technology for the future lunar exploration" (from the SELENE Project Site)
There are two things that really catch my attention about this particular satellite: 1) It has an HD video camera on board. That's cool. It sends these videos back to Earth on a regular basis. You might be thinking: "Jason, you're a dork, I've seen the Moon, we landed there, what's the be deal?" This brings be to point number 2: the satellite is about to crash. Wait, CRASH? Yup, that's the plan.
The satellite was launched in Septemeber of 2007 and, since then, it has been in an orbit of the moon getting closer and closer and closer. This week, it'll crash somewhere on the "near side" of our Moon. That brings me back to cool point number 1: HD video. This means the Satellite is capturing moving images of the moon's surface that looks AMAZING since the satellite gets closer every day. The crash will happen on June 10th, but Kaguya will keep showing us HD video of the Moon until then.
