Basking in the glow of another succesful Mars Rover landing; Curiosity!

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there were a few RPG players following the heavy geek action at the JPL tonight with another rover landing on Mars tonight. And you could watch from the command room live! Wow, the imagination is on fire.

Actually, one of our robots has encountered life on Mars. That's the Rover that we aren't hearing from anymore. =O

"Tastes ... like ... chicken."

;D

Seriously, though, I am glad Curiosity made it. I was hoping that a manned expedition to Mars would pan out, but it doesn't look as if it will happen anytime soon. Sheesh, according to several Fifties B-movies I've seen, we were already supposed to have a base there and regularly scheduled flights -- by the 1970s.

"Tastes ... like ... chicken."

That's a fairly loose translation from the original Martian. The actual word denotes a small burrowing pseudo-cephalopod, although it literally means "thing that tastes like everything else".
