You see that little guy? He is Sojourner, part of the Pathfinder mission to Mars and the first rover to ever land on the red planet. To think that it landed on Mars ONLY 15 years ago is crazy and during those 15 years we have seen Spirit and Opportunity and now Curiosity. That to me is amazing. We have gone from this little 20 pound droid rolling along the Martian surface to a giant that weighs as much as a car is just mind blowing.
Fuck I love space exploration.
Fun Fact: Sojourner was renamed to the Carl Sagan Memorial Station.
