Full-release of the SELENE (KAGUYA) High Definition Television (HDTV) data

All the data taken by the high definition television (HDTV) onboard the SELENE (KAGUYA) lunar orbiter are released. The SELENE HDTV was developed in cooperation with JAXA and NHK, and it took full HD images all around the Moon. Originally, operations was planned for one-year, but in the end, the instrument took more than 600 movies over the full 21 month SELENE mission life. Considering high scientific values of the HDTV data, DARTS opens the whole movies and still images that are extracted from the high resolution movies.
The image in the right-hand side (click to start movie) indicates the "earth-set" in the south-pole region, where many countries are planning to land and explore in near future. (September 2016)

EXCEED data on-board "Hisaki" released

The dataset of the extreme ultraviolet spectroscope (EXCEED) onboard the Hisaki satellite is now published on DARTS. Hisaki started a big observing campaign for Jupiter’s aurora and plasma from May 2016 in collaboration with the JUNO explorer and Hubble space telescope. This campaign will uncover plasma accelerations and heating at magnetic rotators. (August 2016)
