Why don't we have HD video of Earth rotating in space? You know, relatively close-up, as if the Enterprise had just dropped out of warp and the planet was being majestically introduced to the cinema audience. An extended, multiple pass/rotation exposure, so that it could be watched by appreciative viewers wanting to get a bit of perspective/peace. I imagine I would sit and gaze at this for extended periods. What are the technical limitations which have prevented this?

I would like to find a link for a short video clip of a video game that meets certain criteria. It will go into a presentation to elementary school teachers, as a quick backdrop to a point about interactive games that will be used in school, and that will be fun while challenging kids to think and learn. (It won't itself BE that game; it just has to plausibly look the part.) It needs to have some connection to an outer space theme. [more inside]
Can you think of any good video clips of waveforms in space that you've seen? They don't necessarily have to be copyright free (this is for a personal project), but they do need to be good quality and accessible to me within a few days - I'm doing this project at DVD resolution, 720 X 480...

Anyone remember the name of this classic arcade game? [more inside]
