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.

RIP Spaghetti 2011-2014

A few months back, we discovered that our cat Spaghetti had been born with a defect that was causing his organs to move into his heart sac, causing him to throw up all his food and making it impossible to live a healthy life.

With the help of many, many donations from fans and friends, we were able to afford the surgery he needed to try and fix the problem. He had three very full and happy months following the procedure and we can only thank everyone that contributed to giving him some extra time on this earth.

Unfortunately, this past week, we learned that his stomach had begone shifting into where his small intestine began and it caused him to throw up even more than before and it became impossible for him to eat. We were told by the doctors that any attempt to fix this complication would cost even more than the previous surgery and that it wouldn’t even guarantee him a healthy life - only the chance at one.

The last thing we would want is for Spaghetti to continue suffering, so with a heavy heart, we asked that the doctors put him to sleep yesterday.

I’ll always remember him as my friend - as my son - as an important part of my family. I’ll remember him comforting me in my worst moments, and waking up to his face every single morning as if he’d been waiting for me.

I’ll wait for you now, old friend. Every single day.

I miss and love you so much.

Me and my buddy

I’m keeping this shelf empty except for your favorite ball.

I can still see you in all these different places.
