Since I’m convinced that there is little intelligent life in the world (or at least in the U.S. government) let’s head to Mars for a moment. From Gizmodo I followed this link to The Big Picture’s Martian Skies.
The NASA Phoenix Mars lander has confirmed water on Mars. That does not mean there is life on Mars but it’s a huge discovery and can lead to a better understanding of how Mars formed. Was it always like this? And if not how did it become like this?
The web page is an amazing collection of pictures from various missions. Just look at the picture of Phobos. Head over to that page, I feel better knowing that we’re still capable of such exploration.
