do not click, spiders

Sadocus asperatus (on the left) and Pachylus chilensis (on the right) from Chile are one of the most archaic inverts around! They belong to Opiliones, an order of arachnids colloquially known as harvestmen, harvesters, or daddy longlegs.

Three countries are due to reach Mars in the next two weeks

A small fleet of spacecraft from the United Arab Emirates, China, and the United States will reach Mars this month after launching from Earth last year. The march to the Red Planet marks a marathon of firsts: it’s the UAE’s first foray into deep space, China’s first independent attempt to land on Mars, and NASA’s first shot at deploying a Martian helicopter.

The first image of Mars captured by China’s Tianwen-1 probe on February 5th, 2021.

While each mission has its own individual milestones, the fleet of spacecraft is collectively opening a new era in Mars exploration. With the arrival of these missions, the hunt for signs of off-world life is in full force. UAE, China, and NASA are all racing to gain a better understanding of a world believed to have held life at some point in the distant past or possibly in the present. With Tianwen-1 analyzing potential subsurface lockers of ancient life, Hope scanning the Martian atmosphere, and Perseverance scooping up dirt samples for retrieval, an answer could come soon, Nye said.

“What are the chances that someday evidence of life will be found there?” Nye said. “Very high.”

No that lizard didn't get caught running down the wall. It was snare on the ground and the spider used a web pulley system to hoist it up like that!

Watch the NASA Perseverance Mars rover landing in this incredible video

https://www.slashgear.com/watch-the-nas ... -22660512/

I cannot believe that video is real... I know the second video, with the drone, isn't... I'm not saying NASA is lying, it's just that the video looks incredibly good... I know it's not real time, and a computer may have "enhanced" it, but still.

Now I want to see video from the drone

Hey Pariah, linux is on Mars! :D
