Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency

"Fly me to the moon?

Japan’s first lunar probe called ‘Selene’ is being showed off for the press at Tsukuba Space Center in Tsukuba.

Japan’s space agency is called Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (or JAXA) announced that they are planning to send the probe whose name reportedly stands for Selenological and engineering explorer, to the moon in August of this year.

The probe will be launched into space a Japanese built H-2A rocket.

Is it just me or does it kinda look like something from Stanley Krubricks film 2001 a Space Odyssey?"
