insight landed, still no actual photos

Let’s see… NASA’s InSight probe supposedly landed on Mars back on Monday. Visit their website two days later and there are lots of videos and photos, all of which are CGI-generated or they’re hours’ worth of employees looking excited.

Here’s one I’ve managed to dredge up though:

Is that the best we can do for the US$1B price tag? Presumably, it’s a down-facing camera with a frog-eye lens.

Yet again, it feels like lies stacked on top of lies to me.
