I mean how incredibly jaded have we become that we don’t just sit back in jaw-dropping awe of such a reality every single day of our lives?
We have photos from Mars people…MARS!
Right now at this very moment we have a little rover vehicle rolling around on the surface of a planet that is about 225 million km. away from us (I think that’s about 139,808,518 miles…but I don’t do math so if it’s wrong it’s wrong) snapping pictures and gathering samples and measurements for us.
And the little rovers that could, as a group, have been doing it now for eight years thanks to the genius engineers at NASA.
Behold the alien beauty of the surface of a planet that is home to the highest known mountain (Olympus Mons) and largest dust storms in our solar system.
