THE NEW AGE OF EXPLORATION
“Ever since our species left Africa some 60,000 years ago, the urge to push beyond what’s known—to discover new lands and opportunities—has shaped human culture. And that impulse is still strong.” - National Geographic
This blows my fucking mind.
This is a photo of a sunset on Mars.
ON FUCKING MARS. The science/space geek in me is going bonkers over this.
I find it incredible. I want to go.
Me too. Think we can get a package deal?
As taken by the Spirit rover in 2005. Beautiful and a little bit mind-blowing alright. Sunset. On a different planet.
I love the subtle irony of sending a “Flying Saucer” TO Mars. :-)
