This is an old news.
I have attended a research cruise for a month, and could not report it.
However, if you don't know the news and have never seen the movie,
I strongly recommend to visit the following site.
The moon explorer satellite "Kaguya" took a Hi-vision movie
of the Earth-rise from the Moon horizon.
The movie is provided as Flash-movie so that most people can enjoy it.
Just a 4 minutes movie is quite impressive for me.
I cannot explain why the Earth-rise is so fantastic.
Moon will have resources (metal mineral and energy),
and will be a useful place for human.
But I feel that the movie give us other meaning to visit the Moon.
