From orbit, the latest addition to the robot party at the Red Planet, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, gawps voyeuristically into Martian nooks and crannies with its powerful High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera. Here it snaps a photo of a feature with the characteristics of water-carved channels, further evidence supporting a wet past for Mars.

I am going to have to start showing Sage your blog, since you have the most awesome planetary pics anywhere. He has become very interesting in all things planet-related lately. It's fun to see a kid's face light up when he learns that a planet can have more than one moon.
