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.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.
Some of the many funny Batman and Alfred moments over the years. BROTP.
When the movie releases, are you prepared to be a hero to thousands of kids? What will it mean to you? (x)

Han Solo’s mom, and she’s cooler than him.
Han’s parents both died when he was very young, and he was found by Garris Shrike, a bounty hunter who thought himself a Corellian Fagin-type with a band of child thieves to do his bidding. Han was more or less adopted by a female wookiee named Dewlanna and she was amazeballs. She taught him Shyriiwook and about traditional Wookiee values like honour and Life Debts. She sacrificed her own life to save him when they tried to escape from the abusive Shrike, which is why years later when he, as an Imperial pilot, witnessed an Imperial officer beating a captive wookiee, didn’t hesitate to save him. Han was court-martialed, dishonourably discharged, and had a bounty for treason on his head, but he kinda didn’t give a shit, because he knew he’d done the right thing. The wookiee, Chewbacca, swore a Life Debt to Han, and the two escaped with the aid of the Rebel Alliance. Han returned to the only life he’d known and the two became smugglers.
I don’t really know why I just busted out my Star Wars nerd on this. Like, at all. I think I was thinking about wookiees??
