The universe is a huge playground of knowledge and mystery, the bad thing is that a lot of #Astronomy lovers can't access or study it easily by ourselves, i live in a country that doesn't have even a Telescope, a space research office, a astronomy information community, a universe and planet research facility, NOTHING.
We just have to wait to see information and researches made by others, on social media, websites, tv, documentaries, and bloggers, i hope someday space travel would be like going to a park or to the beach and let us do our pictures, research and enjoy the beauty of space by ourselves.

1. It's on Mars! Just think about that for a moment. This is a picture taken from the surface of another planet. Yes, that kind of thing almost feels normal these days ...but, it's from another planet!!
2. It's blue-ish, not red like on Earth. Isn't that weird? So, on Earth, more commonly known in the galaxy as the blue planet, we have red sunsets. But on Mars, more commonly known as the red planet, the sunset is blue.
"The colors come from the fact that the very fine dust is the right size so that blue light penetrates the atmosphere slightly more efficiently. When the blue light scatters off the dust, it stays closer to the direction of the sun than light of other colors does. The rest of the sky is yellow to orange, as yellow and red light scatter all over the sky instead of being absorbed or staying close to the sun."
"Just as colors are made more dramatic in sunsets on Earth, Martian sunsets make the blue near the sun's part of the sky much more prominent, while normal daylight makes the rusty color of the dust more prominent."
Damn, I love the universe.
