Mars Exploration - 50 Years and Counting

This Mars Exploration Video Inspires - and Deflates at the Same Time

JPL (Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena, California) just released this video celebrating 50 years of Mars exploration. Since 1965, when Mariner 4 was the first probe to reach Mars, 15 different Nasa-led missions have gone. This video celebrates those missions, highlighting great moments in their history.

The shot at 3:30 of the Curiosity Rover and the Earth rising in the sky was especially thrilling.

But you can't help but think,

Why aren't humans there already?

Take a look at this video and share your thoughts. Are you inspired? Wistful?

Or both?
