Mars as it was being visited by Perseverance


Recommended Posts

I was getting pretty tense watching the build up to Mars entry, so I ducked out to image Mars with my Heritage 150p and Logitech c270 webcam.

Well done Chris. I watched the landing (well lots of people getting excited in the control room and some simulations) and it was great. Well done on the images. :)

Very thought provoking. Have far "we" have come.

I remember looking up at the Moon as a young boy, maybe Apollo 16 or 17 thinking that there are men up there.

I was only about 8 years old but my fixation with the Moon at that time prompted my parents to buy me a plastic toy telescope. It was just junk but to my eyes... And here I am!

Cheers Rob. When I got back inside all my family were huddled around a tablet looking at the 1st picture sent back. Such a relief after researching all the missions so far since the 60's and seeing how many failed. Looking forward to the data it sends back :)

Apollo must have inspired so many! My first telescope was also a plastic toy and it was terrible lol
