Mind boggling phenomenal viewing.
I can't help but spare a thought for how scientists and cosmologists of days gone by would view such missions.
Newton; maybe okay with the travel and gravity, being more baffled by rockets and confused at the concept of video being beamed back.
Galileo; well, it could take some time. But worth the effort.
Copernicus; well, maybe best explained as an acknowledgement that he was right in suggesting the Sun is at the centre of the Solar System. And leave it at that.
Just what does the future hold?
What will the present leaders in their fields miss out on?
An absolute privilege to be witness to this sort of science. Absolutely fantastic that NASA is being so public with the science, no doubt designed to garner public support and secure funding.
I mean the sound of the Martian wind at an estimated 5m/s.
