Just mind boggling. Imaging received from Mars!

@leo I was watching with my kid and she could not see why I was so excited about it. She's growing up watching rockets land side by side all the time... she thinks this is all trivial :/

@roberto I love the idea that your daughter's generation will take space exploration for granted.

We take jet travel for granted, but imagine how grandma felt.

For years people thought the Wright Bros. were fakers. Three years after Kitty Hawk, the Herald Tribune headlined an article on the Wrights "FLYERS OR LIARS?"

@leo that's a good point re jet travel. Hadn't thought about it in these terms.

But it hurt me when I was in awe of a robot landing on Mars and my kid was basically yawning :D
