50 Years of Mars Exploration -- And 1500 Posts!

I have covered a lot of the accomplishments of NASA, both human and robotic spaceflight and exploration, and I'm using this 50 year retrospective of our exploration of Mars to celebrate my fifth year with this blog and its 1500th post. I find it staggering to know that all of this exploration has happened within my lifetime. The science books are continuing to be rewritten by what is being learned by the dedicated men and women running these amazing robots. I have to say, Curiosity, the last rover landed had the greatest, most science fiction style landing mechanism ever. Looking forward to what the next few decades will bring.

Thanks to all of those who have been reading and viewing these posts in the last few years. Your interest and your visits make this happen. We've also passed the 150,000 page view mark. Thanks again.
