Friday Photo is From Mars!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Pictured above is the first photo of Mars, the red planet, as the Perseverance vehicle was about to land, this image is in the public domain.  We were very moved by this wonderful accomplishment by NASA.  A big thank you goes to Michael Jacobs for inspiring this post.


We are inspired by the word, "perseverance!"  Here is the definition, Persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

This one minute plus video, is also worth watching. It will lift your spirits, and it sure did ours!


Congratulations to NASA and all the people who made this happen, and persevered.

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

~ T. S. Eliot.

Grant Schneider This is an example of unparalled teamwork.  Our best friend has worked as a consultant at NASA, and he was so inspired by the teamwork and the modesty of the scientists...A

Good morning again, Alexandra... really quite an amazing accomplishment. I remember how excited our country would get back in the 1960's when we were making the first forays into space and to the moon. I wish we had more of that today. I saw that celebration in your video on TV and it brought tears of pride to my eyes to be an American.

I loved seeing that photo and the memes that are being created from it are funny.  I saw one with my boy Elon and the Cybertruck asking what took them so long, haha.

Watching this video, you can feel the nervous energy before the announcement that the landing was successful. And then I love the excitement as everyone jumped up and yelled as one. Thank you for sharing.

One can only admire the minds that worked together to get those photos.  I have seen some similar, but that's usually after I try to hit out of a sand trap

Another historic moment. We can get to Mars but have difficulty delivering services in our own country.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- having grown up in Houston, I still get excited about most anything to do with space.  I got excited just watching those in the Control room.

The Mars landing and photos have been such fun to watch and read about...pretty impressive when you think about it. And such an appropriate name for the rover!

Love this video!

Great reminder of a great event.  Have you seen the photo of "keyhole" structure on Mars?

Contrary to NASA's complaint, it's not too difficult to explain based on keyholes found on Earth. Researchers find them lnked to solar, steller events like solstice.  Some are dated to 6,500 BCE

Here's the Sardinia, Italy keyhole well.

The stone steps and massive stone walls engineered so perfectly, they appear laser cut.  The Smithsonian and National Geographic need to investigate all Earth's keyholes and air on History Channel. 

I just happened to find a program last night on this very thing, the source for above info. How's that for snychronicity.
