PostSubject: Mars photo   Wed Aug 12, 2015 10:18 am

Has anybody seen this?  This photo was taken by the Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars.  Nobody's sure what it is, but the London Daily Mail is calling it an "alien face-hugger crab."

HeeHee  Curiosity recently sent this selfie from the Martian surface.  How cool is it that, just over a hundred years after we humans learned to fly, we've landed a spacecraft on a planet 140 million miles away!  thud
