    Hi.

    Hey, thanks for that.

    I'm not really that interested in the watching part of it (the results, yes), but the kids, who've never seen anything like that, were enthralled.

    Travel guitar allowed? Stairway on Mars might actually be appropriate.

    Yup, the three missions to Mars are all taking advantage of how close Mars is to Earth, but social distancing is being observed.

    Update on my Mars Boarding Pass...as I understand it, my name and those of 10,932,294 of my closest friends supposedly went up on the microchip in the upper left corner of this gadget on the Mars mission today. I'm somebody now!

    Someday my descendants may get a visit from citizens of Mars seeking payment for damages, trespassing warrants, unauthorized dumping, and parking tickets. LOL!

    I understand the fascination with Mars but I think it’s a pipe dream to colonize it. I watched a Netflix docudrama about establishing a colony in about 15 years. Not in the next 50.

    Actually if you mean "we" as in Australians, then I guess you should know that NASA relies on Australian radio telescopes to provide telemetry support to their missions when you guys are facing the wrong way. Also the scientist who developed the technology that will be used to help determine if life existed on Mars way back when, well, she's an Australian too.

    I usually miss them to. That's why I was so excited to be able to see this one live. You can catch it on YouTube.

    If NASA has a sense of humor, they'll do another one of those golden records like on voyager, but with this song...

    pipe dream and boondoggle

    the vanity/ego of man


    Q: What is the difference between colonizing Mars and colonizing the vast hundreds of thousands of squares miles of desert wasteland inside our own country ?

    A: temperature, proximity, and the presence of oxygen :mad::eek::lol:
