Let's take "How the World Works" to the next metalevel. On November 7, a camera aboard the Japanese lunar explorer Kaguya filmed the Earth rising and setting over a lunar landscape. Pink Tentacle says a high definition television broadcast of the footage is on the way, but in the meantime, even a lower-resolution YouTube abridged version is fantastic.
