At NASASpaceflight.com they have a drinking game going on for every time this question is being asked:...
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=27385.360

OK, that is hilarious. Why don't we have such games? biggrin.gif For every time somebody suggests how they should have included fans/electrostatic discharge devices/wipers to clear the dust off Opportunity's solar panels, drink.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Or reflying more MERs, or suggesting a reusable spacecraft architecture of some sort.

Because we should be flying more MSL's? smile.gif

Truth is, we do seem to be approaching something like a standardized Mars rover design. Of course, if we dropped a few dozen of them on Mars, we'd need corresponding teams of scientists and engineers to manage them, which starts getting expensive and is limited by the supply of qualified people.

Couldn't we use the RAT brush to clean off the solar panels? [GULP]

I volunteer to take a swig for the team each time I say the Kepler mission needs to carry on for many more years!

Anytime anyone says 'Earth Like' in conjunction with Kepler results.... drink.

Anytime anyone says 'Couldn't you use fans to blow it off?' about MER and dust... drink.

Anytime anyone says 'That looks scarey/crazy/mad/bound to fail' about MSL EDL... drink.

I used to play this with 'When can I have an iPad version' regarding Eyes on the Solar System...but my doctor told me to stop, unless I wanted a liver transplant by Easter.
