APOD of the fortnight VI

Scientists speculate that an ancient ocean covered the northern hemisphere of Mars.  Apparently it disappeared when their messianic leader couldn’t stop an oil leak on the ocean floor.

I didn’t know that the Ruskies had a successful moon landing (even of just a robot).  Typical commie beauty and elegance – they probably used a tractor-gas-to-vodka still as the manufacturing platform.  It may resemble cheesy scifi, but still… cool.

Even cooler:  A rectangular nebula and a “rubble pile” asteroid (one comprised of cosmic scraps amassed by gravity).
