Another round of “first image of…” from the Curiosity rover. This time, clouds in Mars. Could not help but stop and look marbled by the colours of the Martian sky (I always pictured the surface as a red desert with a very limited colour palette).
And it looks amazing. It is always nice to see the technical aspects of videogames, and this video shows a little bit of that. Easter egg: temporal super-resolution being implemented in mainstream tools! Can’t wait to see more of this engine during the E3.
Quite a busy week, but fortunately I still managed to have some time to enjoy really cool stuff.
Just make a small pause and think about this: a couple days ago humanity did its first flight on a different planet. And we did not even were there. Let it sink. I have always been a bit jealous of the generation that lived through the Moon missions, but it seems that we are going to see incredible feats in the following years.
There were some really cool pieces on the Ingenuity helicopter:
As we set course for other planets, I think it is time to reflect on the way we are shaping our home. Google released a new feature where you can take a look at some of our planet locations through the last decades, and see how humans have impacted on the landscape. You can take a look at Google Earth (they say they will keep adding info in the future too), and read about it on their blog post.
Long live the 70’s!
This actually happened last week, but I did not realize: Greta Van Fleet has a new album, and its awesome. Late birthday gift! Streaming links: Spotify, Deezer.
