Yes, indeed. I want to know how warm it is under there.

That was unavoidable. Since science proved a few decades ago that space is finite after all, and since every quantity must have it's opposite quantity to keep the cosmic balance, nature had to come up with something infinite and invented a source of infinite stupidity.

Sweet. That seems like a very quick transit time. We'll have lots of cool new information to mull over by this time next year. Hopefully that will include more evidence of life, but I suspect that any definitive proof lies deeper than current technology can dig.

Yes! It was amazingly hard to find confirmation of that on my news apps. I think it was about 3pm before I finally found something.

There was some minor communications problems early on, but it looks like that's been fixed now.

Thank goodness. Hopefully this mission doesn't fall victim to the Mars Curse.

Oh, man. It will be hijacked by an amorphous Martian life form and return to Earth. :lol:
