A reminder that there is an image of the sunset seen from Mars.
Take a moment to realize that this is the result of a robotic motor vehicle travelling millions of kilometres of space, successfully landing on the surface of another planet and communicating with Earth from there.
Captured by NASA’s Spirit rover in 2006.
and then there is this, slight addendum and hope to what I just wrote :)
Blumenthal is playing at this same time. I suppose it’s a sign if you believe in that sort of thing. Now matter what reason, it’s the perfect companion song to this photograph right now.
A photograph taken from fucking Mars! The same light source I love so much, and take for granted.
Watched the video of a Million Miles Away from Ulrich Schnauss a few times in a row.
Conjures memories from the 70s, when I was in high school. It was such an awesome thing. So much cooler than Skylab.
The Shuttle Program has run it’s full course and there really isn’t anything nearly as exciting going on now. Sure there is important science being done, but no major program that everyone was excited about.
Things have shifted from that magical time frame to this sorta limbo we are in now. Every 4 years waiting on the next group of Politicians who are gonna make it better, yet that better never comes for most of us.
Kinda depressing if you ask me.
We need that National thing to cheer for. Not another war, but something to strive for.
Am I just dreaming out loud again?
Is this thing on?
