Random Thread: August 2014

Last August, the Curiosity Mars rover looked up into the sun and watched Mars’s moon Phobos cross its surface. Technically, the event was a transit rather than an eclipse, because Phobos is too small to blot out the sun the way Earth’s moon can. Whatever you call it, a year later we still think it’s staggering to see pictures like that from another world. Hail curiosity, and Curiosity!
