Opportunity of a lifetime.
Where could this be? It's a *little* cold. a lot of wind. Some dust storms. No trees or rattlesnakes to bite me. I would love to stand here a bit and meditate. Nobody would bother me. I'd like to lie down here and watch the wispy clouds go by. The air here is very thin. This is no desert on Earth.
This is actually a photo taken by Opportunity Robot. The luckiest machine that ever existed who just hangs around the red sands of Mars observing, making tests and taking pictures. Courtesy of the fantastic website Astronomy Picture of The Day.
