Anand Mahindra shared an image of Earth taken from Mars on his Twitter account and said that this image should teach humility. Anand Mahindra, chairman of the Mahindra Group, again shared a tweet on Thursday that included an image of Earth taken by NASA from space. Earth can be seen as a point in the image. Sharing the image again, Mahindra says this photo should teach humility. “If there’s only one thing this photo has to teach us… it’s humility.
By now, it might be known that a Twitter user named Curiosity (@Sciencenature14) who actually shared the image shared that the photo was actually taken from Mars. “This amazing photo was actually taken from Mars. Yes, the planet Mars and the little star-shaped white dot there is our beloved Earth! NASA,” the tweet read.
NASA provided a glimpse of Earth’s image taken from Mars, saying it shows Earth as seen from the Martian surface and shining brighter than any star in the Martian night sky.
This image from NASA’s Curiosity rover shows Earth as seen from the Martian surface, shining brighter than any star in the Martian night sky. Earth is a bright spot of light to the left of center, and our moon can be seen just below Earth. Curiosity landed on the red planet on August 6, 2013 and is the largest and most advanced rover ever sent to Mars. It studied the surrounding geology and found evidence of a past environment suitable for supporting microbial life,” NASA said in a blog post.
The blog post further informs: “A human observer with normal vision standing on Mars could easily see Earth and the Moon as two separate bright night stars. When Curiosity took the photo, Earth was about 99 million miles (160 million kilometers) from Mars.

Several Twitter users commented on the image Mahindra shared. One user also shared an image of Earth, sharing that it was taken in 1990 by Voyager, 4 billion miles away.
“It was picked up in 1990 by Voyager 4 billion miles away. It makes our planet and everything on it so meaningless. In a weird way it’s entertaining.
