Updike On Mars

Via io9, John Updike's National Geographic article on Mars. With plenty of fine photos. (But why didn't they ask Kim Stanley Robinson?)

PS the photo of the sunset was, as mentioned here before, taken on my 50th birthday. It's the background picture on my computer.

Thank you, Paul! This photo with sunset is unbelievably great!
Stanley Kubrick could only dream of this.

Forty years on, 2001 still looks pretty good, I think. We can only dream of what Kubrick might have done with the fabulous images from the latest generation of brave little robots...
