Whoa, Mars might have as much water underground as Earth does

If you’re planning on helping to colonize Mars, you’ll be thrilled to hear that a recent analysis of Martian meteorites indicates that there may be more water on Mars than we previously thought — a lot more. Scientists now think that the amount of water that’s underground on Mars could rival that of Earth. The discovery has rekindled speculations about the red planet’s ability to sustain life — including, potentially, that of human visitors.

Photographers always talk about perspective. It doesn’t get more perspective than this: first ever photo of the Earth and the Moon in the same frame, 1977. Taken by Voyager 1.

This doesn’t fall under Sunday Fluffday but it’s a great post.

After the earth dies, some 5 billion years from now, after it’s burned to a crisp, or even swallowed by the Sun, there will be other worlds and stars and galaxies coming into being — and they will know nothing of a place once called Earth.
