“Holy shit, indeed.”

Mon 22 March 2010, 9:23pm

I’ve previously noted some of the stunning images taken by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. And at The Guardian Sam Leith praises the “compelling stillness and strangeness” of the latest “photographs [which] inspire not only awe and wonder, but also a sort of longing.” You can see what he means in this short video compilation – more images here.

    God must have been one busy bee indeed to have created all that detail amongst so much else in a mere 6 days.

    I’m endlessly amazed by the progress made in images from space.

    When I think back on how excited I was to see those blurry images of the moon all those years ago, then look at what science offers today, I’m very grateful to be alive at such an exciting time.
