You all even pissed off Yanche.


I wasn't trying to piss him off. In my defense, I was joking what with the eleventy billion dollar bit. I can only imagine how difficult it is to land a spacecraft on a distant planet.

I want to go riding up there before the EPA & treehuggers get there! :D


Looking forward to the color pics. I did stare at the b/w pics for a while, imagining.

What I really want to see .... probably not in my lifetime the way the economy is going ... is live pictures of Titan. They could build an amphibious rover like the mars one, and go boating on the methane lakes! How cool would that be??? 8-) That's one of the planets that fascinates me the most, besides Venus. Venus is much closer, so probably a better chance of seeing it by rover than Titan.

I still want to go ATVing on Mars .... :D

Congrats to NASA. What a very cool accomplishment!

Maybe they could generate some income by selling "Drive on Mars" sessions. For a (big) fee you could drive where you want and control a camera for X amount of time. No wheelies or your time is over!

I'd find the steepest crater wall & try to climb it, just like back in the day on my 250R. 8-) Only I'd have to try it sober this time. Cuts in the suit could be bad up there ... :shock:
