    Can't wait for the color pictures to start rolling in.

    As someone who still does work for an ISP from time to time I had to take a gander at how we're getting data between here and there, just out of curiosity. Very interesting stuff. I think if we ever got to the point where it doesn't take 5-20 minutes just to get a signal from point A to point B, that'd be about when we should start looking for volunteers for a manned mission.

    Really? Hard to really see that from that photo, I guess because there's so little to judge perspective from. How tall are they saying that mountain peak is?

    I believe that's Aeolis Mons -

    Aeolis Mons,[1] (also known as Mount Sharp), is the central peak of Gale Crater on the planet Mars.[2][3][4] The mountain is located at 5.4°S 137.8°E and rises 5.5 km (18,000 ft) high.[2][3][4] Aeolis Palus is the official name of the crater floor plain between the northern wall of Gale Crater and the northern foothills of Aeolis Mons.[1]

    and they say shinny objects used to distract others doesnt work


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    Some believe God created the Universe so I'm sure he has a map and knows whats on Mars is all I was getting at. I have no clue I've been to church maybe 4 times in my life.
