Pictures from Mars

I had been looking for a site with a good presentation of some of the better Mars lander pictures, and from Marko comes this great link of 17 pictures (some animations!) from the Red Planet.


Absolutely stunning.

I could stare at these all day.

Go look now, and for a few moments, ponder what it is you're looking at, and all that was required to bring it into reality.

Marko goes on to make a good point;
Those are pictures of another planet, taken by a probe we sent there via spacecraft. Just a hundred years ago, we were just getting a handle on the combustion engine and powered flight.

Exciting times.
