Earthrise from the moon

Earthrise on November 7, 2007 from Japan's Kaguya (Selene) orbiter.

Set YouTube to full-screen 1080p.

Absolutely stunning.

It was nearly 43 years ago that Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon.

The last men to do so were Harrison Schmidt and Eugene Cernan in December 1972.

Nearly 40 years have elapsed.

What happened?

We became more interested in navel-gazing.

We also lost two shuttles.
