Mahindra re-posted the image with a wonderful tweet. “If there’s just one thing this photo should teach us….it’s humility…,” he shared.

“This photo from NASA’s Curiosity rover shows the Earth as seen from the surface of Mars, shining brighter than any star in the Martian night sky. Earth is the bright point of light a little left of the image’s center and our moon can be seen just below Earth. Curiosity, which landed on the red planet on August 6, 2013, is the largest and most advanced rover ever sent to Mars. It studies the geology of its surroundings and has found evidence of a past environment well-suited to support microbial life,” reports a blog by Nasa. “When Curiosity took the photo, Earth was about 99 million miles (160 million kilometers) from Mars,” it further explained.
