Michael Benson: landscape photographer with robots as assistants

August 2, 2008

This is interesting… Yesterday I went to see the photography exhibition by Michael Benson entitled ‘Beyond: Visions of the Interplanetary Probes’ with photos of planets in our Solar System and when I came home and switched on my TV (Arte and DW TV, mostly!) I’ve heard that NASA has again confirmed the existence of water on Mars. To be more precisely, some coolish robot (who is walking now through the Martian’s parks) actually found and tasted the soil sample containing water. I believe, this robot is now, after becoming a celebrity on Earth (and Mars!), pretty thirsty.
