The Circle Of Life



Oh Great Spirit Of the Indian People
Hear my words For they are words that come From the heart, soul and mind.

Oh Great Spirit Be my eyes,
Be my ears, Be my heart, Be my soul,
So that I may walk With dignity and pride.

Oh Great Spirit Of the Indian People
Know of me. For I am of your people. I am Indian,
An Indian of the Circle of Life
A prisoner of War In my own Land!

Oh Great Spirit, Of the Indian people,
Hear my words For they are for you.
They are of you. You are my way of life
In the Circle of Life.

Martian storms

“Like its predecessor, the Viking 2 mission consisted of a lander and an orbiter designed to take high-resolution images, and study the Martian surface and atmosphere. Both the Viking 1 and 2 landers benefited greatly from their orbiting counterparts, which snapped images that helped mission controllers navigate the landers to safe landing sites.”

This particular image was taken by the Viking 2 Orbiter and shows a massive dust storm on the red planet. This spectacular storm can be seen on a global scale. The Viking 2 mission would end 3 years later on April 11, 1980.
