Japanese Robots Arrive On The Moon

V_lunara_01
Exciting day for JAXA! Japanese robots arrived on the moon for the first time today. Like most vehicles that make great voyages, the lunar probe has a woman’s name—Selene—short for Selenological Engineering Explorer. It was launched on September 14, four years behind schedule, but safely arrived at its destination, where it will hang out for a year investigating the evolution of the moon. It’s the largest lunar mission since Apollo.
