NHK DVD 月周回衛星「かぐや」が見た月と地球 地球の出そして地球の入 [Blu-ray] / ドキュメンタリー

はるか遠い宇宙から届いた人類史上初の映像――いま、あらためて月とこの地球に思いを馳せる。 日本の月周回衛星が取得した世界が注目する圧倒的ヴィジュアル、まさに世紀の映像が遂にBlu-ray Discで登場! 日本の月周回衛星「かぐや」に搭載されたNHKが開発した宇宙仕様のハイビジョンカメラがとらえた<史上初>となる月と地球の映像。また、「かぐや」から地球までの距離はおよそ38万km。これだけ遠い宇宙からハイビジョン映像が撮影されたのもまた史上初! 月の海、高地、巨大クレーター、表と裏、永久影など月の驚くべき光景が満載。まさに宇宙船での"月の名所巡り"が味わえる。暗黒の宇宙空間にただひとつ幻想的に浮かぶ小さな青い星・地球が、月の地平線越しに昇り、そして沈んでいく「地球の出」「地球の入り」。その美しさは圧巻であると同時に「地球のかけがえのなさ」、そして「人間が月に行くということはどういうことか」を考えさせられる。最も身近な天体でありながら、実は未だ数多くの謎に包まれた<月>。美しい映像とともに、月の起源と進化の謎に迫る。次世代メディアBlu-ray Discによって高精細な<ハイビジョン>映像のままに、かつてない美しい月と地球の姿を堪能できる。
「かぐや月世界飛行」 (17分/優雅なクラッシック音楽の調べに乗せて「かぐや」がとらえた月と地球の映像をたっぷりと観賞。画面テロップや解説ナレーションは一切無く、ただ映像美に浸る。気分はまさに宇宙旅行。ドビュッシー「牧神の午後への前奏曲」、ショパン「ピアノ協奏曲第二番」、ドヴォルザーク「交響曲第九番 新世界」他収録。)

      High Definition Voyage 5

      I really enjoyed this Blu Ray, in fact this is the kind of material that these discs were made for. I agree with the previous reviewer that the build-up and launch footage was too short, but the lunar orbit footage was superb. Earthrise was beautiful - even more so in Hi-Def. I'd love to know what the Apollo astronauts would think of this!

      Terrible Pre-Release Comment

      Wow, what a huge disappointment! With the exception of the nearly perfect video of the satellite being prepared and finally launched (much too short, by the way), the actual orbiting video is incredibly poor. I have a hard time believing NHK would intentionally produce such a horrible transfer, so all fault must lie with the HD camera and/or broadcast/receiving apparatus. Folks, the space scenes resemble badly upconverted 480p! Oh, the pain!
