Tumblr, I’m back. Your exact raison d’etre persistently eludes me, so I’ve taken some initiative and decided to mould you into exactly what I want you to be. A sounding board, a reflection, an inspiration wall. Worth a shot, on a quiet Monday afternoon.
This black and white image is the first photo ever taken from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd Martian day, or sol, of its mission. (March 8, 2004)
The image is actually a mosaic of photos taken by the rover’s navigation camera showing a broad view of the sky and an image taken by the rover’s panoramic camera of Earth. The contrast in the panoramic camera image was increased two times to make Earth easier to see. The inset shows a combination of four panoramic camera images zoomed in on Earth. The arrow points to Earth. Earth was too faint to be detected in images taken with the panoramic camera’s color filters.
