[Image: Photo courtesy ESA]. As an intriguing example of how the tradition of landscape representation has rapidly progressed—from the Romantics and the Hudson Valley School to Rosetta—I felt compelled to post these photos from the craggy and glacial surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko, sent back to Earth yesterday from the European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft.

Silver Village

Worshipping the Crash
