I have gotten my own domain name and greater server space so the Mars Art Galleries are back. Each gallery has a page of thumbnails and then you can click for the larger version of the image. Image numbers are part of the file name and those that I have included PURELY for their artistic qualities have "art" in the file name too. Images where I think anomalies exist that 'might' have some artificiality to them do NOT have "art" in the file name. In this section "art' truly does mean what it says, art.
With the THEMIS camera now in orbit, I would love to dearly include some images from those releases as well. Sadly though, they have YET to release ANY visible true color images from ANYWHERE on the planet despite more than 6 months of science and nearing 3 weeks late on releasing the first data dump according to their stated public policies. Well, even though politics is an art unto itself, my intention is NOT to get deep into the sad muddy quagmire that these politics are in this section tonight. I am just trying to get the Art Galleries back up for folks to see that even though we are STILL only getting more and more of Monica Mars ( In Black n White), there ARE beautiful places on the planet in that have an artistic quality in of themselves in that medium. Sadly THEMIS seems incapable of finding any of these in the VISIBLE COLOR spectrum despite having the BEST color orbital camera sent there in more than a quarter century.
Please use these new links for 2002:
Mars Art Gallery 1
Mars Art Gallery 2
Mars Art Gallery 3
Hope you enjoy the images. I also hope to be able to add more soon...and COLOR ones from THEMIS???
Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Don't make promises and policies you don't intend to keep and to keep the policies and promises you do make.
ACTIONS speak louder than words.
ACTIONS are PROOF of intent.
ACTIONS are the final judgment of character.
It REALLY is that simple.
Let's taunt a Billionaire to Mars ! ! ! Beats Begging.
Think out there act down here... NOW ! ! ! Have YOU ??
Give a High School kid a reason to care...a spacewalk.
Teach 'em a lesson in teamwork.
Teach 'em a lesson in humanity.
Unfortunately the Art Galleries had to go.
There is only so much space I have and I need it for other things right now. Hopefully things will work out soon for more space.
Sorry for the trouble, but the REAL blame of course, lies RIGHT HERE !
