Photo of Phobos
This isn't one of the many dull photos I take with my phone as I'm pottering about Fife, as you may have thought. It was taken by the Mars Express apparently. Not sure if that is a newspaper, a train or some form of interplanetary craft that happened to get close to the Martian moon Phobos, you can never really tell these days. Anyway Mars still remains a pretty sexy planet as far as most folks on earth are concerned. From H G Wells, Matt Damon, the ancients and the new series about to start up on the History Channel, Mars is the place. Yes we all love Mars and it seems and quite right that we should, it will be our refuge and home (well for those with enough influence and cash) one day when the earth has been finally strangled and asphyxiated by this septic generation's plastic and junk.
