Chandrayaan 1 – Pictures and Videos

Yes, this post has come a few days late but this is something to be proud about. The spacecraft called Chandrayaan 1 has reached the moon and even released an “impact” probe. Here are some pics and a video showing the surface of the moon as seen from 100 KM above its surface from the orbiting craft.
