    In the past month I have seen a picture of a Martian sunrise from the Mars land rover. Even better, I now see a picture of Ultima Thule, taken from the New Horizons Spacecraft. An ice formation out past Pluto. Yet we cant use a camera to see on the other side of a bunch of trees. I am sorry... I just ain't buyin' it.

    I there lies the heart of the issue; m o n e y

    The cameras on those space shots cost a bit; I don't think Murphy could tax us enough to pay for one ;)

    Let's keep things in perspective. A fire monitor doesn't need to be mounted on no New Horizons Space Ship or Mars Land Rover. And it could have a tad less megapixals too;)
