NASA’s Mars rover Opportunity points its Panoramic Camera at the soil, seeing a bit of itself and a closer view of its tracks on June 23rd, 2010.

OPINION: This is one of the most beautiful and almost literally fantastic images ever created by our species. This image says so much; it captures the sheer analytic and romantic power of humanity, as well as our relative insignificance - our potential and the fact of our limits. It is at once hopeful, epochal, and even heartbreaking. I’ve probably looked at this image for upwards of an hour over the last week and sufficed to say it makes me feel a lot of things indeed.
