From Earth To Mars

Here are two really important videos that are science related that I would like to share with you:

On March 5, 2021 NASA’s Curiosity Rover sent HI-RES panoramic image from MARS’ Mont Mercou site as well as Martian Clouds, Dust Tornado and Water-smoothed Rocks

All images are non-edited to see Mars in real colors

. Martian clouds and dust tornado are animated (collected from series of images). Mounted on the mast (the rover “neck and head”), these black-and-white cameras use visible light to gather panoramic, three-dimensional (3D) imagery.

The navigation camera unit is a stereo pair of cameras, each with a 45-degree field of view that supports ground navigation planning by scientists and engineers. They work in cooperation with the hazard avoidance cameras by providing a complementary view of the terrain.

All images and animations are from Thomas Appéré – associate teacher of Physics-Chemistry-NSI @stpaulstgeorges | PhD Doctor in Planetology Credit:, NASA/JPL-Caltech, NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS/Thomas Appéré

And back here on Earth we have some images of when Mabel Dreams. I happen to think that anything concerning dogs is important and without science this clip would never have been made, so it counts as an important science share.

Yeah…it’s a reach but it’s nice to know that my creative writing skills come in handy at times like this.
