up, up, and away

Intrepid in flight – courtesy NASA

Toronto. Bet you thought your telephoto lens takes a really long shot! I have an old 20 inch Bausch and Lomb lens that mounts on a Leica mirror box. But, NASA has everyone beat by miles. Their tiny Intrepid drone took off f rom MARS Monday (19th of April if you are counting)  and took this video.

Well done little camera – and a tip of the hat from every savvy photographer and videographer!

Note: The title of this post is a 1967 song written by Jimmy Webb, sung here by the 5th Dimension (very low resolution video).
