Mars. In true colour.
Just so you know, a lot of images of Mars which you’ll see have been manipulated. A lot of them have boosted contrast and saturation. So if you’ve ever wondered – images like this one are what Mars actually looks like.

Why does this not have more notes?!?
YOU ARE LITERALLY LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF A ROBOT ON ANOTHER FUCKING PLANET
If you don’t think that’s the tightest shit, you can get out of my face.

i wanted to reblog this so that everyone who sees it can realize just how amazing this is. you are looking at a photograph taken on an entirely different planet. an entire world that has been completely untouched by humanity until only recently. no human in the history of mankind has ever look at those rocks, the soil, the mountains, and the sky until now. and until we finally manage to set foot there for the very first time, no human has ever seen mars from this perspective with their own two eyes or feel the texture of the martian soil on the bottom of their boots. this was only possible by creating a robot, an actual robot, and shooting way out of the reaches of earth and with extremely careful calculations, have it safely land and deploy right where they want it. it’s a robot on another planet being controlled 225 million kilometers away, seeing and studying and sending information for us.
this is the sort of thing you would see in science fiction movies that are only a few decades old. what was only imagination and possibilities back then is now all in this photograph. im looking forward to see what happens in the coming decades

I’m so infatuated by this. 

225 million kilometers away and we got it on film that blows my mind

This isn’t what the real Mars looks like, the real one’s in 3-D

Your assignment today is to just look at this for at least sixty seconds without a break.

Man, there are stones on Mars? Like, you can just pick up a rock and throw it at someone’s stupid head on Mars?!

This realisation just blew me away…

So today was interesting

Saw my first wild rattlesnake (that wasn’t at my parents’ house)

image
Rari almost stepped on it.

Discovered my as-of-yesterday unknown dislike for that stubborn, stubborn willow. You try walking through a canyon of it. It took us 3 hours to go ~1.5 miles.

image

Fell 15 feet down a rockface and busted my ankle and gained more than a few bruises.
But thankfully nothing more serious than that,

imageWhere I fell from, taken halway-up on the way back out.
Yes, I had to walk back out in all that crap willow on my bad foot.

image
Where I landed, taken from the same spot. I kind of zig-zagged.
Rari said I fell gracefully, and that she’d have needed orthodontic work if she’d fallen. But she’s a mountain goat and climbed down no problem so pttttttth.

My butt is so bruised. I landed on it and my ankle. (Don’t worry, no pics)
Yes, sitting does hurt.

And yes, I’m working tomorrow. Just not out in the field.

My best friend e-mailed me the link to this youtube video.  It’s a three year old contemplating his choices while sitting on the toilet.  It’s hilarious, adorable, and a little gross… Right up my alley. :)   Enjoy!
