feetnik: i’m delirious!

mars (7k image)From the Washington Post:

But this week, Mars goes beyond its usual cool status to super-cool. That’s because on Wednesday, Mars will be the closest it has been to Earth in at least 5,000 years. (There’s some debate about this. NASA says Mars was almost this close about 60 years ago, and other scientists say Mars hasn’t been this close in nearly 60,000 years.) But in any event, on Wednesday night, Mars will be just 34,646,418 miles away. You’ve never seen anything like this. (Neither have your parents, or their parents or their parents’ parents. You get the picture.)

Go outside and look for the Olympus Mons.
