Looking for life in all the wrong places

NASA Spacecraft Makes Historic Landing on Mars

A NASA spacecraft plunged into the atmosphere of Mars and successfully landed in the Red Planet's northern polar region on Sunday, where it will begin 90 days of digging in the permafrost to look for evidence of the building blocks of life.

We're spending how much money, investing how much emotional and intellectual effort, into a search for the most elementary sign of life on a planet it takes months to get to.

And we can't even see life when it's right under our noses.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

GOOD POINT. this is the end of times ~ when people begin calling wrong 'right' and right 'wrong'. their focus turns to upholding the cause of things, animals, trees...and they have veiled themselves (subconsciously or not) from the most essential priority: human life.

great shot.
