Japan's Satellite Crashes Into The Moon, Sends Back Footage Of Its Demise

Japan's Selene satellite has been sending us amazing HD footage of the surface of the moon for a couple of months now, but on June 11th, it finally crashed into the surface. And its final video might be its best.

Unfortunately, the crash itself happens just over the line into the dark side of the moon, but you can see its final decent and just how damned close it was to the surface. It's incredible. It seems like its mere feet above the surface, showing a level of detail never before seen. Amazing. [JAXA via Pink Tentacle]
