    The Earth & Moon seen from Mars

    Very cool photos of the Earth and Moon, as well as Jupiter and her moons, take from the Mars Orbital Camera. The connection is a bit slow, even on my T-1 connection, but I thought it was worth the wait.

    Interesting! and it didn't even take much to load

    So when's the First Cyburbia Field trip to Mars? Shall we observe the increasing sprawl of rocks there? :p

    I think this is great -I was sooo amped to see these pics. The pics we're going to get in the future are going to be mind numbing can't wait. The sooner we get the best technology into deeper space the better..... I say.

    But how does it make you feel?

    You know to see your home planet from far
    (really far) away.

    I feel like we live on such a delicate, small rock
    in the middle of nowhere....

    It could be gravel tomorrow.

    I feel pretty significant in this big old Universe. This litlle blue ball drifting in space is the only one we've got, for now. It's a very exciting time for astronomy research.

    About astronomy I feel astonished by our ignorance.... There's so much out there, and so much unknown. I don't believe that we are alone in all this vast universe, but I don't believe the BS of the "scientists" of Ufology.
    Of our solar system, Earth is the only inhabitable planet, although we could make efforts to terraform Mars into a habitable planet.
