Anyway, this is a photo from the Curiosity Rover on Mars. It's a view of Earth. From Mars. How cool is that?!
This is the kind of photo that gets you to think Big Jack Handey Thoughts. Like...
Just how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. And just how incredibly awesome the Universe is.
It's still amazing to me that there is this contraption on Mars right now, right this very second, taking pictures of Mars and sending them back to us, never mind the incredible mind-blowingness of getting the Curiosity Rover to Mars in the first place.
Kind of makes you wonder: if we can do this in 2012, what will they be able to do in 2112?
P.S. I'm a total space geek.
P.S.S. Mars looks a lot like places in Arizona.
