Did you happen to see this panorama created by the Opportunity Mars rover? Launched in 2003, rolling since January of 2004, it’s an astoundingly successful mission. This picture calls to mind the last line of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars trilogy. The last part of the last line of the final book is a verbal heartbeat, “… on Mars, on Mars, on Mars, on Mars.”
