Looks like its a tough mission to plan for; they are calling it 'Apollo without the astronauts.'" I would like to go to Mars in person, but if they're spending my money already, I'd like them to please use robots for a while.

    So it's going to be an unmanned mission.

    Just wondering who is going to sign the ever-present forms then. Look at www.slashdot.org/articles/01/03/19/2049249.shtml and tell me the bureaucrats will let them get away with just a single form today.

    I doubt it...

    Here [goatse.cx] is the labb of Butt fucking labs that does the ass thingie. This [goatse.cx] is the penis to test the robustness of the ass. GOATSE has learnt (sic) from several failures apparently.

    A picture of martian ass [goatse.cx] with some cock, if you're interested. Along with some [goatse.cx] interesting [goatse.cx] ass with dick patterns!

    Natalie portman scans,

    IP's banned,

    lameness filtration

    O, divine moderation!

    Hellmouth! apache!

    The Enterprise theme's catchy

    It brings tears to my eyes,

    it brings rhapsodies to mind

    On a more serious note it would be neat to have hobbyists designing bots for mars on a competitive level to see who can come up with the most efficent/reliable/lightweight etc design. The guys at NASA have great ideas and implementations - but I think that the bazzar vs cathedral idea could help here.

    How about a manned mission, but instead if NASA, we can get CBS to do a reality-based series about it, like Survivor III. Tagline: "You thought a desert island and the Aussie Outback were rough, you haven't seen anything until we dump our castaways on Olympus Mons!"
