A fine mess


Impact scars on Mars made by the Cruise Stage of the NASA Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft which the spacecraft shed just before entering the Martian atmosphere to deliver the Curiosity Rover. Now then NASA, my Mum always told me, 'If you make the mess then you clear it up.' (Photo by NASA, of course).

  3. I see the similarity Joyce :)

    And Claude: more like "marking" it like a dog raising its leg to pee on a lamp-post perhaps.

  4. We'll just go ahead littering the universe, oblivious to the contempt other species hold us in.

  5. Oh, and I thought it was a painting of a Kingfisher in the desert.

    But no, just us showing no respect as usual.

  6. Given that we seem to be incapable of keeping our own room/Planet clean and tidy it is hardly surprising that we are already making messes elsewhere.

  7. It does look a bit like a prehistoric rock painting of a Kingfisher.

    I do think it is a "fine" mess however, as in worthy. I heartily approve of the reason it was made and I look forward to seeing a few more of them as our robotic exploration continues.
