A Morning On Mars

Since the early decades of the 20th century

Writers, artists and futurists had dared to dream of what life might be like on Mars. These dreams were informed by science that was evolving quickly.

Our raku pottery vase this week is called ‘A Morning on Mars’ and as you can see this art piece evokes what a Martian landscape might look like with it’s hazy iridescence.

But what would a morning on Mars really be like?

Like Earth, Mars is tilted on it’s axis and thus experiences day and night. It’s day is slightly longer that here on Earth – 24.6 hours. Because Mars is further from the sun, the light received is less than half of that here on Earth. One would be able to see Earth and the Moon from Mars, though they would appear star-like, much like Venus, our ‘morning star’.

As we Earthlings

Inch ever closer toward putting a person on the planet, one can only hope that we treat that planet better than the one we are on now.

So they say curiosity killed the cat.

Curiosity hasn’t met Chairman Meow.

  1. That’s a stunning vase, for sure, and it does remind me of Mars. As for colonization of the Red Planet, definitely not. We’ve not proven ourselves to be good stewards of our “starter planet;” there’s absolutely no justification for spreading our environmental crimes to other worlds. I’m all for manned missions to Mars for scientific research, but our hubris disqualifies us form ever setting up shop there. The clock’s already running out on us here on Earth; I don’t think we’ll be around long enough to get to the point technologically where we could feasibly attempt to colonize another world.

  2. Beautiful Mars Vase, hope you put in some flowers on top of it from The Garden. Mars— oh why not life on Mars ? But why colonize ! Just a spot to live, and grow different kind of flowers, new soils, why not the Curiosity Robot, check drill for some water few feet’s deeper ?
