Oh, Chute!

The same orbiting camera that captured yesterday’s photo of the Earth and the Moon from Mars got this photo of the Phoenix spacecraft descending toward Mars under its 30-foot wide parachute. That’s the Martian surface in the background.

Memorial Day

The Washington Post has faces of the fallen from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Interactive Vietnam Veterans Memorial is online.

Of course, there are many other wars, many other fallen soldiers, many other memorials.

Happy Memorial Day.
