It's a nice picture, Chriscjgs, I appreciate it. Looking at Earth from another planet really puts us and our lives in perspective, doesn't it?
My only gripe about the photo, why did they have to put the words "EARTH" and "MOON" in large, blocky, white letters? It ruins the photo somewhat, and frankly, if you don't know that Earth is the blueish sphere then you need to go back to school.
I do understand you, I really do. But my point is why waste millions of dollars and resources to take a picture of the earth from mars when we can use that money in something that the earth really needs it. I don't need to spend millions of dollars to realize how beautiful planet earth is and to realize my existence when there are many people needing that money and our own planet is being destructed. I do see the beauty in it but also see the irony in it.
