the view from out there

hi there

well, these images are pretty widespread across the net, but i thought i would post them here for the one or two people who read this blog but otherwise are not particularly good with the whole internet thing. yes, hello Dad, and possibly Susan too.

this whole NASA Curiosity thing is really remarkable. if you click the link back there, you will get taken to hundreds of pictures taken by this device that, by skill and fortune, they managed to land on Mars.

without doubt, the most popular picture sent back thus far is this one.



yes, that's the Mars skyline. impressive, isn't it? and before any of you who like those conspiracy theory things comment, yes i am aware that the images here are the ones "touched up for clarity" by NASA. you can find the original images on the link provided.

if you are wondering which of those three planets you are currently sitting on, here you go!



hopefully they shall find something up on the red planet that justifies the cost of this whole project. to be honest, though, this image must surely cover pretty much half of the bill!


be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
