Fascinated with Mars!

I have been following the space program since its inception and being a avid reader in my youth of the Edgar Rice Burroughs/ John Carter of Mars series, I was particularly fascinated by the Mariner IV probe to Mars, which was the first to send close up pictures of another planet. I was somewhat disappointed by the quality of the images, but excited nonetheless. The later Viking 1 and 2 landers' pictures were of much better quality and so amazing at the time; the photographic technology had improved so much!
I can't wait for pictures sent back by the first humans on Mars!
