Mar's Surface Captured by the Curiosity

I had an uncle who swore man would never land on the moon. Just half a century later, NASA presents us with the first color photo from Mars. Wish you were here to see this, Uncle Joe!

The Curiosity on Mars - NASA photo

Many of you watched the landing of the Curiosity and have already seen its three cameras. The first photos were taken by the black and white cameras and now NASA has turned on the color cameras. What an awesome sight!

The nuclear-powered Curiosity will begin its exploration of Mar's surface to look for signs of past life, learn about the surface and atmosphere, and try to determine if the planet can sustain life.

Thanks to NASA for share this fascinating and marvelous venture with us.
