It was fun watching the mission control guys in Edwards, CA jump around.

I'm excited to see what they learn. Why isn't the entire world going crazy with enthusiasm? Oh yeah, Britney Spears probably exited her car without underwear... again.

A robot landed on Mars today
it was very exciting,
it was like a conquest
but there was no one to over-throw
no one to dispose.
I went to the Acoma pueblo today
it is the oldest continual community in north america,
mostly older people, traditional people, 2802 people,
they have no electricity, they haul water up the mesa
by the bucket full and heat their homes
with firewood they gather and carry home on their backs.
The Acoma people were over-thrown and disposed of properly.
There is no Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Acoma
and I think the people there are grateful of that.

The little microbes in the Martian ice may be preparing to conquer Earth.

I for one think it's pretty cool.

About two weeks ago NASA had some blurb in the news about a major discovery, something they'd found, and were going to announce it two days later. Two days later they said they'd found the remnants of the oldest known supernova, or something to that effect.

It's stuff like that that makes people not pay attention.

The oldest known supernova turned out to be Joan Rivers.

One of the first photos returned.

Looks a little like cheese pizza, with lots of oregano sprinkled around.

This is potentially better than the rovers.

I'm very disappointed they couldn't come up with a scheme for making Phoenix last a few years. But, if the results are good enough, I suppose it shouldn't be measured in terms of length of time. Without wheels, it couldn't add that much anyway.

It always looks like Arizona or West Texas.

Ok! the whole round earth thing was a fluke but.......... that looks pretty flat to me. It's even leaning a little, and I'm sure I see someone in the distance.
