This mission is amazing. The fundamental questions about life and origins of life, the technology to get there, the ingenuity in the landing, the creative nature of the experiments. All amazing. But to me, this picture is most amazing part. No longer do we just land on planets and go wandering. Now we take pictures of us getting there. And all in near-real time (That’s better than NBC do with the Olympics).
