Stabilised Video of Lunar Buggy on the Moon

I saw this on www.http://sploid.gizmodo.com/ and thought I would share. If you like science and space exploration, you will probably have already seen the original footage of astronauts driving a buggy on the moon. If you haven’t then shame on you, but not to worry – here is the same footage but stabilised. It frankly fills me with wonder that we apelike creatures can achieve this stuff when we put our minds to it. I’m hoping that now China has it’s first moon lander Yutu up there, coupled with developments from companies like Space X, we are on the first of a much needed expansion into space.

Before the video, here is an interesting fact: NASA hired General Motors and Boeing around $40 million US for four of the buggys. Three are still on the moon.
