From the Moon to Mars

More science news via the Professor. [More?! – Ed] Indeed. Japan’s JAXA/KAGUYA (SELENE) lunar probe identified uranium on the Moon’s surface. And, although it was mentioned when I noted Kaguya’s timely demise, the spectacular on-board footage of its final descent is worth putting out front. Below the fold there’s an informative video from NasaTV using images from the Mars Reconnaissance OrbiterSoaring over Mars.

Soaring over Mars. Enjoy.
