I'd completely forgotten that movie. (wonder why??) Is that the one with the insane robot dog thing?

He rips Sojourner open to grab its radio. I was not amused.


I'm less disturbed by that than the fact they aren't wearing helmets. huh.gif

Oh, okay. So all that's needed to streak on Mars is a whole lot of EXTREMELY flatulent algae.

(That type of plot focus might have made for a better movie, actually... tongue.gif )

Here's a somewhat humorous, and seasonally appropriate story about a gingerbread rover at Caltech's Athenaeum. smile.gif Although the model is rather lacking in realism, I think we'd have to give the chef an A for effort. wink.gif

Been trying to make out what looks like a hastily slapped on bumper sticker...

Team, I've chose the MSL Humor forum to add my thanks (as I don't want to get in the way of the good science being done on this forum). My first view of Mars, back in 1975, was a tiny, reddish disk, through a 50mm cheap refractor (about 30x), i.e. pre Viking.
Now, I'm presented with...ALL THIS!!!
Wish I could contribute, but as you may agree, just the images alone, reveal something so alien, my contributions would be restricted to Wow, or dare I say Strewth (which I know are frowned upon in the more focused threads).
I just want to say, well done all. The work done here, as with the MERs, will lead to outstanding scientific outcomes.
