Day -4. Mars

In August 2012 on August 9, 2012 at 2:10 pm

I somehow managed to miss most of the media surrounding the landing of Curiosity on Mars.

But then I saw the photos on this website http://www.spaceflight101.com/msl-sol-2-full-images.html (thanks to Upulie Divisekera).

The pictures make me feel overwhelmed and amazed and scared and happy all at the same time. Mars is a real place with real dust and rocks. There are shadows on Mars! There is nothing there and yet somehow behind all of that nothing is new knowledge waiting to be discovered. Wow.
