I wish it looked a little more like Wall-E.

SK: There's always some work of fiction that anticipates things like this (though I still haven't heard of any work of fiction that foresaw the internet before the fact).

Grundy: I wish it looked like one of those war machines in the film version of War of the Worlds. After all the shit the Martians have thrown at us throughout cinematic history, it would serve them right.

I was holding my breath going into the weekend…
Can’t imagine how sick with tension those people at Mission Control must have been.

When I read about the capabilities of Curiosity and the quantum advance it could mean in understanding Mars … It’s good to know that the human adventure is still alive. Can’t wait for the pics to roll through.

Magpie: Yes, the scary part is over -- now the work of getting results begins.
