While browsing, I came across this page which details the current projects DARPA (US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is working on. After reading it all, I have to agree, it is truly bad-ass.
Chandrayaan-1 took this photo of Earth from Earth orbit on October 29, 2008 at 12:30 PM IST. Near the center of the disk is the northwestern coast of Australia; the Sun glints off the Indian Ocean adjacent to that coast.
It’s breathtakingly beautiful!
