Pale Blue Dot

This Video, The Pale Blue Dot, is very inspiring. It shows the last picture taken by Voyager of Earth. It really shows how insignificant we are to the rest of the universe. Yet to us, Earth is the 'world' to us. Narrated by Carl Sagan.

NASA's Curiosity nearing launch

The Rover, Curiosity, is now recieiving it's finishing touches as it is prepared for launch in November. The Mars Rover was going to include a 3D camera the was built with the Assistance from "Avatar" Director James Cameron. Unfortunately, due to time restrictions, the camera had to be removed to fit the Rover's timescale. Hopefully we may find some evidence that Mars was indeed habitable during some period on it's existance.
