Everyone knows that CNN is fake news now (has become extremely biased)...:P.... but this is a good news story directly from NASA :)

Thank you for using one of the biggest discoveries in the history of space exploration to couch a political statement. I'm sure Carl Sagan would have nodded approvingly.

Ya well.... CNN used to be credible now I can't stand more than 5 minutes of it..... but not all of its programming is bad - but agree with your sentiment that the story itself deserves the attention ;)

CNN's credibility, whatever state an individual may or may not believe it to be in, is not in question. Your choice of slipping that in, is. It should not have even been typed out in the first place.

Point being that using a major scientific milestone which will end up in the science textbooks of generations to come as a means to take a stab at a group you dislike is in shockingly poor taste.

Eh, CNN is only fake news if they have a reason to lie. Don't really see why they'd lie about this.

With that being said, I hope this will prompt Elon to get to Mars even faster. Space exploration has been put on hold for too long.

            The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been continuously taking images of Mars since its launch in 2005, with its latest dispatch this month containing an astounding 1,035 images.
        While the MRO sends back photos every month, but this month is special as every 26 months the geometry of the planets offers a sweet spot for data return. As Mars is currently at opposition, or the Sun and Mars are on opposite sides of Earth’s sky, there is no obstruction of communications between the planets for a few weeks.
        While taking these images, MRO is also informing scientists of the best possible future landing sites for landers such as ExoMars, InSight, and other NASA rovers. The orbiter is also keeping an eye out on the active processes occurring on the planet’s surface such as sand dunes, new impact events, and slope flows.
      This is where the images can be found:

      I would also like to add, there are a lot more than one thousand images total
      Page 1 of 1,841pages (44,176 images)

      Just popped up on a bunch of news sits that NASA is going to make a live stream press conference about some "big" discovery on Mars today, I don't know what it is but what do you guys think? Think there blowing this to much out of proportion? 
      I personally don't mind them trying to get some hype around space exploration!! Almost wish it happens more often.
