Curiosity is diligently trucking away on Mars, and NASA kindly posts all the raw images sent back to Earth online. I am enthralled by the gallery. Some are of Curiosity inspecting itself, but it’s mostly high resolution pictures of the dirt and pebbles of an alien world. It makes Mars feel familiar and tangible, and makes the distance from here to there seem all that greater. Stay tuned, more pictures are being radioed back from 154 million miles away.
