Been following Phoenix's stories since Monday.
Love the best-image-ever as below. Usually what we got are those pictures by the Pathfinders on the landscape or computer generated images of what our robots are doing down there. This is the first (well, sort of) image caught of us descending on an alien atmosphere. Teary eyed yet?
The rest, stories and images.
Now, who's an alien? Or (gasp), are we visiting our own native planet? Teng teng teng teng.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake,
excerp from Auguries of Innocence.
