Color photos from Mars (High Res)
Skeeve
I saw a tweet from NonStampCollector earlier:

So I scrolled back and saw his previous tweet with a link, http://t.co/TaVb95zz , and saw this:

Amazing.

That scene needs a Pizza Hu... I mean, cool picture! Smile

I can hear the conspiracy theorists now, talking about how it looks so much like Earth that it must therefore be Earth and thus is all a scam to hide money actually used to install the transceivers in the backs of our necks and pay for the crack distribution program or whatever.

So anyway, that is a good picture. Even though I've known for some time that it wasn't as if the sky were red or something, I'm always surprised to see blue skies and all. It actually looks like it might be warm in the picture, though of course it isn't. Too bad terraforming is probably impossible.

Not yet at least. Not in our lifetimes either, probably.

But it would be so cool to see a Mars Colony before I die.

After all the SciFi I've read, to see an actual clear picture of Mars is just. fucking. WOW.

Terraforming impossible? All you really need is for Quaid... Quaid... to start the reactor.

Terra-forming Mars will be easy. The hard part is convincing Christians that Mars is really the promised land.

Would you really want Christians there? FUCK THEM! I will write checks directly to NASA for the exact project they are working on!
That's right, I said it...

If it gets them to go away from here? Yup
