Moon: The Great Impact

Synopsis
A look at the Japanese space probe, Kaguya, which is orbiting and cataloguing the entire surface of the moon for the first time. Launched in 2007, Japan’s first moon orbiter has been circling the moon and collecting data, transmitting high quality images and footage back to Earth. Kaguya is also searching for evidence of water, following the discoveries of the Apollo missions in the 1960s and 1970s which found evidence to suggest there had been water on the moon. This video reveals the latest research findings about the moon and the relationship between the moon and earth. It also discusses the plan to send out more probes into space. (55 minutes)
