"the names of more than a quarter million Earthlings."
Who will be first to be enlisted as slaves upon the arrival of our Martian Overlords.
Let's just hope they're not offended by any of the 'art' either.
NASA is preparing to flex the robotic arm on its Phoenix lander following a technical glitch which provoked a temporary comms breakdown between the spacecraft and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which relays commands to Phoenix and dispatches information from the Martian surface back to Earth. NASA explains: "The UHF radio …
It looks like the colours have been altered on the picture with the flag and dvd. It's as if they have added more red to it, as that's what people would expect to see.

Due to Rayleigh scattering (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raleigh_scattering), the Martian sky must be blue. If you colour correct stock NASA imagery for the planet, the terrain looks much less 'alien' and indeed looks a lot like similar deserts on Earth, e.g. Arizona. Nasa has always racked up the red on their Martian pics for some unexplicable reason.
Mines the penguin coz it's cold and there's a lot of water there for them to swim in.
are staying out of view of the cameras while poking the control buttons, and laughing their asses off.
This is just another case where an extension of the Brit total coverage camera surveillance society system would be useful. The Martians could be prosecuted for vandalism and, hmmm, disrespect.
