On Feb. 24, 2007, when it was about 240,000 km (130,000 miles) out, Rosetta took this incredible full-disk image of Mars with its main OSIRIS camera. It was the first three-color image taken by the camera that closely represents what the eye would see. - Credit: ESA

THE big question ... there is water on Mars but are there hot tubs? A primitive ocean on Mars held more water than Earth’s Arctic Ocean, and covered a greater portion of the planet’s surface than the Atlantic Ocean does on Earth, according to new results published today. http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1509/
Fact # No.4. It is impossible to take a photo of the universe but as far as can be determined as of now it is thought to be about 30,000,000,000 (30 billion) light years in diameter. ie. Travelling at 186,000 miles per second it would take us 30 billion years to cross it. There is one school of thought that says that we may be only one universe out of an infinite number of them. We are NOT alone, whatever your religion may tell you !
