Unhappy Looks like the Mars Earth Probe Defense Force may have scored another one...

http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/0...act/index.html

NASA lost contact with the Spirit probe 24 hours ago and haven't been able to reestablish communications since. The last transmission from the probe also contained nothing but garbled, meaningless data.

They're probably hiding lots of WMD's up there as well ... so the americans might as well invade for the good of the Martians

Well, good thing a second one is on its way. I'm so happy that the first rover (a 10 million dollar program) worked for many weeks while this one seems to have died (over 100 million, iirc) died an abysmal failure before it was finished. Whee.

What is that?

Anyways, I'm certain that there's a race of isolationists up there that destroy every machine that we're sending. Either that or a bunch of Martian cavemen who break the things apart for raw materials...

He makes the statement that the European mission probably did better, then tells us to look at an image as if it supports his statement...

Uh ok CK go take a pill and lie down, anyway in retrospect that statement should be "And anyway the europe mission probably did better. Take a look at this image they got"

Ok, forgot about the European orbiter, and I assumed he was talking about the lander that's probably scattered across a crater in a million pieces right now.

Intresting piece on the NASA mission:
Mars Buggy 'May Have Landed in Mud-Like Material'
Quote:
Pictures from Nasa’s roving Mars buggy have astonished scientists by indicating that it may have landed in mud.

Strange marks near the Spirit rover’s landing site suggest that against all the odds there be might liquid water on or just beneath the surface of Mars.

The water would have to be very salty to avoid freezing or evaporating in the harsh Martian conditions.

If the scientists’ suspicions are confirmed it would be the clearest sign yet that lakes and oceans once existed on Mars, and greatly increase the chances of life.

The presence of water in the Martian soil could even mean that the Viking Mars landers really did detect life on the planet in 1976.

Positive results from the Viking experiments were dismissed when it was realised they could have been produced by an inorganic chemical process. But mud on Mars would rule out this explanation for the strange findings.

The mystery stems from a small disturbed patch of ground very close to the lander, New Scientist reported today.

Dubbed the “magic carpet”, it was made by the lander’s airbags scraping across the soil.

But its appearance has taken scientists completely by surprise. Instead of breaking or cracking, as dry soil would be expected to do, the surface seems to have flowed and folded as if wet.

Science team leader Steven Squyres said: “It looks like mud, but it can’t be mud.”

Pure water cannot exist at the low temperatures and pressures found on Mars – it would either freeze or evaporate away.

But scientists say that is not true of brine. If the water contained enough salt, it could be stable.

Not sure if it's true I've not seen it anyware else.
-how.
