What a great pic - thanks to China's latest moon probe, Chang'e 5T1:



The Chinese lunar test mission Chang’e 5T1 has sent back some amazing and unique views of the Moon’s far side, with the Earth joining in for a cameo in the image above. According to the crew at UnmannedSpaceflight.com the images were taken with the spacecraft’s solar array monitoring camera.

The mission launched on October 23 and is taking an eight-day roundtrip flight around the Moon and is now journeying back to Earth. The mission is a test run for Chang’e-5, China’s fourth lunar probe that aims to gather samples from the Moon’s surface, currently set for 2017. Chang’e 5T1 will return to Earth on October 31.

That photo must be a fake--the Earth is bigger than the moon!

Every time I see cool shots of the moon, I'm reminded of James P. Hogan's excellent sci-fi series, particularly the first book: Inherit the Stars

Unless you jiggle that flag every 50 years, you don't get to keep the moon.
