I'm pretty sure I was at work, and when the first photos came in, I saw landforms - plains, mountains, these circular regions that look like they were carved by rivers. I could hardly contain my excitement. Pretty sure I posted a bunch of stuff to Facebook, because I'm a nerd when it comes to space. I want you ...
