This is a pretty amazing image. This is a shot of the latest Mars Rover, name Curiosity, making its parachute descent. This was photographed by Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, an incredibly lucky photograph. This rover uses a plutonium battery, it should easily exceed its two year mission parameter.

Its really been an exciting year for space programs.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
