I hope they land that thing OK :eek: :)

Nerdy fact: Nuclear batteries were used in Apollo as well to keep the lunar experiments running.

If it does crash or disappear, we'll get the usual rounds of "ancient Martian civilisation force field" theories :roll: Funny though that people really think that.

That was the Beagle probe - I think they found photographic evidence that it crashed on the surface but it's one of the many Mars Jinx crafts that leads people to believe in the ancient civilisation crap :roll:

It's not specific to Beagle - it's all related to the "face on Mars" which people think NASA are covering up as evidence of a previous advanced civilisation on the red planet :roll: Anything that goes wrong on a Mars mission is because of this. Various films have been done on the theme too I think.

Really looking forward to the results of this. Maybe it will find some funky martian bacteria, or evidence of it in the past??

You can't smoke on Mars, there's not enough oxygen, if any, to keep the cigarette alight.

They're also taking a payload of Muslims, Christians, racists, homophobes and Zionists to spice things up :)
