Take a second to consider an entire planets worth of dust.

At first glance i thought this was a comparison showing the increase quality between shots.

New Mexican here. Totally understand. Life is all about keeping the sand out of the Vaseline.

Imagine if we landed on mars before that happened. Dust trap space catastrophe
