Science and space have always fascinated me. With modern technology and spacecraft we no longer have to look only at artist renditions of our solar system, we can see how things actually look.
 
Valles Marineris: The Grand Canyon of Mars
Image Credit: Viking Project, USGS, NASA
Explanation: Mars will look good in Earth's skies over the next few days -- but not this good. To get a view this amazing, a spacecraft had to actually visit the red planet. Running across the image center, though, is one the largest canyons in the Solar System. Named Valles Marineris, the grand valley extends over 3,000 kilometers long, spans as much as 600 kilometers across, and delves as much as 8 kilometers deep. By comparison, the Earth's Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA is 800 kilometers long, 30 kilometers across, and 1.8 kilometers deep. The origin of the Valles Marineris remains unknown, although a leading hypothesis holds that it started as a crack billions of years ago as the planet cooled. Several geologic processes have been identified in the canyon. The featured mosaic was created from over 100 images of Mars taken by Viking Orbiters in the 1970s. Tomorrow, Mars and Earth will pass the closest in 11 years, resulting in the red planet being quite noticeable toward the southeast after sunset.

Funny how the article doesn't mention animal factory farming being the lead cause of deforestation and the lead cause of environmental damage, all modes of transport do not come close to beef production alone.

This book is intended for business people to make better presentations but it applies to so much more than that. As a photographer our job is not to blend in and be like everyone else. As an artist we need to "clash with our environment" and stand out from the mediocrity. Oh... and watch the video on page nine... the more spiritual of you may recognize some sacred geometry in those designs - ya, mind blowing I know!

This is really interesting.  I love the part at the end of the video where the astronauts that have been to the moon talk about how they saw the earth.

My 13 year old son, Tony, has created another Lego set and he needs 10,000 supporters for it to be considered. They turned down his X-Files set because it wasn't child-friendly. This new set he created is based on a video game called SubNautica. Please give your support.
