Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
It's kind of a pathetic rock.
Some scientists think it may be an asteroid that wandered too close and was captured by Mars gravity.
That picture from the surface of Mars is great! We live in a great age!
We really do. I really appreciate the insanity that is our ability to get these images so clear and sharp. Wasn't that long ago the Wright Brothers were struggling to get their flying invention off the sand at Kitty Hawk.
One thing I'm sad about in our world of wonders- when I was a youngster, Mars had canals, that may have been built by extraterrestials; Venus was shrouded, but vast civilizations could've been under the clouds, for all we knew. Now that's all gone, and we have two dead planets. No life anywhere that we've found.Oh well, at least we can drive remote-control cars there, and take wonderful pictures!
