Here be Dragons

“Here be dragons”. I like this phrase although this is not something common we heard here.

In ancient time, unexplored and unknown territories were often be given stories like “here be dragons”. We human don’t like unknown; unknown made us insecure, they were frightening, so be able to given some legends to them will made the unknown “known” and help to provide at least some comforts.

Why I mentioned this? It’s just to provide an opening to the picture I’m going to link to at Universe Today. A picture of our little robot Opportunity took on Mars showing a “dragon” and fittingly, Mars to us is still largely an unknown world.

Go and take a look at Here be Dragons on Mars!
