In addition to the lunar atlas, TrailBlazerTM will be taking substantial
amounts of motion and still imagery during its mission from launch to
impact. This video is available for use as content for advertising,
entertainment, and website portal content. Particular opportunities
- Video of the entire flight, from TLI booster separation following
launch, through lunar orbit capture. This video will include a reprise
of the famous "Big Blue Marble" shot of the Earth receeding
as the spacecraft leaves Earth orbit and the approaching Moon.
- Earthrise: A defining video image for the New Millennium. The
spacecraft will capture a reprise of the famous Apollo image of the blue
and white Earth rising over the stark limb of the moon.
- Low-altitude, high-speed video. Following the mapping orbits during
which the imagery for the lunar atlas will be gathered, the spacecraft
will be commanded into very-low-altitude orbits in an effort to gather
very high resolution video. During these passes, we will endeavor to
photograph areas of special interest, including American Apollo and
Russian landing sites.
- Final de-orbit video, up to moment of impact. At the conclusion of
the mission, the TrailBlazerTM spacecraft will be commanded to impact
in a known location. The impact will be set
up in such a way that the final "barnstorming" video down
nearly to the time of impact will be returned.
