South Korean Moon Mission Delivers Devastatingly Gorgeous Earth Views.
Hello, Earth, you’re looking beautiful.
South Korea’s Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter spacecraft, known as Danuri, has sent humanity some visual love letters from the moon.
The spacecraft recently entered lunar orbit and turned a high-resolution camera toward home.
The Korea Aerospace Research Institute shared the views on Twitter this week.
The first two come from late December and show the cratered landscape of the moon with Earth peeking above the horizon.
The images are reminiscent of Earthrise views seen from NASA’s Apollo and Artemis missions.
The around-the-moon Artemis I mission sent back a lovely video of an Earthrise as seen from the uncrewed Orion capsule last year.
