Mars. In true colour.
Just so you know, a lot of images of Mars which you’ll see have been manipulated. A lot of them have boosted contrast and saturation. So if you’ve ever wondered – images like this one are what Mars actually looks like.

Why does this not have more notes?!?
YOU ARE LITERALLY LOOKING THROUGH THE EYES OF A ROBOT ON ANOTHER FUCKING PLANET
If you don’t think that’s the tightest shit, you can get out of my face.

i wanted to reblog this so that everyone who sees it can realize just how amazing this is. you are looking at a photograph taken on an entirely different planet. an entire world that has been completely untouched by humanity until only recently. no human in the history of mankind has ever look at those rocks, the soil, the mountains, and the sky until now. and until we finally manage to set foot there for the very first time, no human has ever seen mars from this perspective with their own two eyes or feel the texture of the martian soil on the bottom of their boots. this was only possible by creating a robot, an actual robot, and shooting way out of the reaches of earth and with extremely careful calculations, have it safely land and deploy right where they want it. it’s a robot on another planet being controlled 225 million kilometers away, seeing and studying and sending information for us.
this is the sort of thing you would see in science fiction movies that are only a few decades old. what was only imagination and possibilities back then is now all in this photograph. im looking forward to see what happens in the coming decades

I’m so infatuated by this.

What to include in a self-care plan:
-a list of your favourite quotes/ sayings- these should help motivate you, give you hope and lift your mood a bit!
-a list of people you love & their contact numbers- this is really helpful to know that people are there for you. You can also agree it with them in advance so you know it’s ok to contact them if you need.
-photos of happy memories- hopefully these will help you remember that life has good times, even if you don’t feel like it now!
-a list of your hopes and ambitions for the future- as with the photos, hopefully this list will help you feel life is worth living, even if you don’t feel it right now.
-something to do- distractions are always great when you feel bad! This could be anything you love doing or which simply passes the time!
-a list of situations you’ve coped well with in the past- this one may take time to compile but is really helpful in challenging thoughts that you can’t cope.
Hope some of you find this helpful xxx
