    It's Space Science again this week.  This is becoming a great trend.
  • Mars!  I would have bet we would have found the life on Mars before Venus.
  • Unless the life on Mars finds the Perseverance Rover first.

    Super!!!!


    So I think that Perseverance Rover is a female, since it has no Penetrometer.

    We may recall that our friend, Carl, postulated just such a possibility back in the '60s.

    They were looking at odd patterns in the clouds and they appeared to have some sort of seasonality (I forget the period) to them, and thought that maybe bacteria or something similar might have a habitable environment in the upper atmosphere.

    That makes sense. Meethane!

    I wonder if you could make yogurt out of them and sell it on Earth.

    There might be some red tape you'd have to go through first. Darn bureaucracies! *shakes fist at sky*
  • The rover has cameras on its neck pod that are separated out like the distance between human eyes.  They probably have taken those stereo pictures that you can see with the blue/red glasses.

    I wonder why they used the human eye distance...does it have some other benefit to it than it giving a human-eyed view?

    Thinking that is the most probably.

    From this web site:  https://mars.nasa.gov/news/8742/follo​w​-nasas-perseverance-rover-in-real-time​-on-its-way-to-mars/

    it shows that Perseverance Rover is still en route to Mars.  I didn't grok that from the show.

    Well, it is Cyanobacteria Toxin.
  • That looked like a penetrometer.  It has three penetrometers, like a shark.
