The Mars QuicktimeVR Pics.

I know, every blogger from the north pole to the south pole has linked to this -- but there's a reason for it: it is truly amazing and very important.

It's amazing, because this is a picture from, dammit, another planet. Maybe the best statement was the one I got from another blog (which I can't remember right now, my apologies if it's yours): "This site is 4.6 million miles from the nearest Starbucks."

It's as close as I, or most likely 99.999% of all humans alive today are going to Mars. It's beautiful, and scary, and breathtaking all at the same time.

Go see it, and for a moment be filled with wonder. It'll make your day that much better.
