You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

Argh

“Evidence of Soil Habitability Inconclusive.”

See The Planetary Blog on the results from Phoenix. Results could actually be the opposite of what we are hoping for…

    The team of Phoenix scientists haven’t finished yet collecting and analyzing data. Nasa site tells that no conclusion has been reched.

    true… perhaps my message is too negative. but the point was part of what we were all excited about “could” actually be the opposite of what we hope for… which would be ironic, no?

    Was the President briefed or not? Why would he need to be “briefed” on a tocix chemical found on mars?

    ooops… I meant toxic.

    it would seem the hub-bub all came from some pretty normal procedure. nothing big was really to be unveiled but i seems some language was taken to mean something entirely bigger. words mentioning the president lead to everyone assuming Martians. when really, it was the usual informing of the president through science advisors which is a routine procedure.
