NASA has been releasing these amazing images shot from their space probe Juno and it sure makes you want to head out for a Sunday drive. Of course driving on this huge planet would be impossible as it’s a big ball of gas surrounding a rocky core. The planet does have a lot going for it however, lots of hydrogen. At least there’s lots of fuel available. So driving my MGB GT on Jupiter, I don’t think so.
Of course the real (sorry little rocket man Kim Jong Un) rocket man Elon Musk has this figured out so being a logical sort of guy he’s sending his cherry red Tesla Roadster to Mars later this month on the massive Falcon Heavy rocket. This should be fun!
While Mars doesn’t have roads yet at least it has rock and soil and….. sunlight! And of course, his red Tesla is powered by electricity. We have smart people in the world! I think the color of the Tesla works, how about you?
Regardless, I’m a little bored with the red planet as we have seen amazing photos of Mars for a long time now. It wasn’t that long ago when the most spectacular images of Jupiter were like the one below. Definitely very cool but boy have we come a long way in the past 50 years or so.
Check out this cool abstract, looks like ice but it sure isn’t.
And if you want colorful swirls of gases you can’t beat these images. Keep these coming NASA!
