Areology

Western Hemisphere of MarsYes, I'm a glutton for punishment. I had been thinking of starting a new blog, something along the lines of two astronomy-oriented photoblogs that I enjoy reading, Astronomy Picture of the Day and LPOD - Lunar Photo of the Day. Areology, which means "the study of Mars," is a topic I've become increasingly fond of, and I thought I'd try my hand at creating a blog along the lines of the above two, except focusing on Mars (of course). So please come visit me at Areology, where we can learn a few things about Mars together.

The above photo of the western hemisphere of Mars (click to enlarge) is a compilation mosaic of over 100 photos taken by the two Viking Orbiters in the 1970s.
