    A Japanese moon probe has replicated the famous Apollo-era "Earth-rise" photograph with modern high-definition imaging.The Kaguya spacecraft, also called Selene, has been orbiting 62 miles (100 kilometers) above the moon since Oct. 18.

    The new Earth-rise image shows our blue world floating in the blackness of space. Released today, it is a still shot taken from video made by the craft's high-definition television (HDTV) for space.

    Heh, I checked the image too, all this talk about a HD new image and they just provide a joke for the public.

    Plus, it is not exactly same image from same angle etc. Unfortunately the original remains the only good one.

    That is very disappointing... especially when you compare it to the full motion video footage I watched on the news where we actually got to SEE it set.
