What would Earth look like if you were on Mars? Turns out it would look a lot like Mars does from Earth.
This photo - the first taken of Earth by the Curiosity rover - shows Earth as just a speck in a vast sea of stars. The image also includes a silhouetted Martian landscape. It's a stunning shot. The photo was captured Jan. 31, 2014, and was released today. It was processed, according to NASA, "to remove the effects of cosmic rays."
Space agency officials say a human on Mars could easily spot Earth and our moon with the naked eye. We can't help but wonder: How long will it be before someone lands on Mars and does just that?
