  • "Curiosity celebrates its first birthday on Mars, complains it wanted a cowboy theme and not a space one"

    Basically this is a subby fail.

    Curiosity is neither one year old, nor has it been on the planet Mars for a year. It was launched from Earth one year ago.

    Apart from that, the birthday celebration lacked a certain necessary kaboom.

    So you're saying that life begins at conception, not at launch?

    At conception, or when her keel was laid down, maybe when she was first powered up, and maybe when she first sang Daisy.
  • SAM may already have detected something exciting. Curiosity chief scientist John Grotzinger, a geologist at Caltech in Pasadena, told NPR earlier this month that SAM's first tastes of Martian soil are providing data "for the history books."
    Grotzinger and others on the Curiosity team will reveal what Curiosity has found on Monday (Dec. 3), during a presentation at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.

    Yes, when she gains sentience is the obvious marker. But that may be a while.

    I don't think it's right to abort a launch if the craft is viable.
  • Martian year or earth year?
  • Launched a year ago and hasn't done shiat yet.

    Cowboy or space theme, you say?

    It's almost like they announced it right before end of FY because they didn't want funding to get cut.

    That said, I think we should put almost all the DoD budget into NASA. We need to have colonized another planet before we hit empty on natural resources here.

    Something exciting for a geologist but not a thing 90% of us would have any idea about.

    /ZOMG!! Subcontained conglomerate eroded basalt/silicon tailings! Or something.
  • If you think it could be practical to vacate significant amounts of people to Mars, you know pathetically little about it.

    History books or astronomy books or biology books?

    Btw I was an extra in Transformers 3 and even with my fantastic background acting, the movie still sucked.

    At first glance, I read that as bathsalt... which would make things quite interesting for a whole different subset of folks.

    I've heard through the grapevine that they've discovered the remains of the Beagle spacecraft.

    It seems that the misunderstanding between Grotzinger and NPR came about because the NASA scientist was discussing Curiosity's mission and findings in general terms as "historic," while the public radio programmer interpreted his words as a reference to a specific and recent discovery made by the surface probe.

  • Is it bi-Curiousity or just plain vanilla Curiosity? If it's the former, it had best wait until college, where it is acceptable.
