For a really gee whiz look at this image from NASA's Curiosity Rover go to the JPL web site, here.

The perspective of tiny Earth viewed from one of her closest planetary neighbors, tells us all we need to know about the importance of preventing the itzy-bitsy dot of the cosmos that we occupy from becoming uninhabitable for humanity.

This place isn't very big and we are all stuck here together. As a species, humanity needs to figure that out, if, as a species, mankind is to have much of a future.

For all my Mars diaries and all things Martian on Daily Kos, go to Kossacks on Mars.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
