Watch: Final Video of Japanese Probe Before it Strikes Moon


Remember the videos taken by that Japanese satellite I posted a few weeks ago as it descended slowly toward the lunar surface? Well, it finally made impact on June 11, and the final video was recently posted. Unfortunately, impact was made shortly after it crossed into the dark side but its last moments are recorded very close to the surface.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  4. Very awesome. Though I do question the littering of another celestial body with our crap, even if it is in the name of "science". What, one planet wasn't enough?

  5. Yeah, that looks so incredibly fake, but why? Why does it look like animation?

  6. Supposedly the shadows on the moon creep along at about a max of 9.6 mph, or bicycling speed. They are 1000 mph on the earth.
