Seeing Red

Today the Mars Science Laboratory has blasted
off for a six year journey to the red planet
Mars. We will be looking for microbiotic and
microscopic proof of "life" on Mars. This put
me in mind of all the perceptions we have had
over the last hundred years about our neighbor,
the fourth planet in the solar system, one third
the mass of earth. So here is a pictorial that
will mix science, astrology, fiction, and
science fiction.

And now we may have the chance to see the real thing, well, not just yet, of course.

Went to a restaurant on Mars.
The food was good, but there was no atmosphere.
