    Fake. We're supposed to believe we went to the moon, lost the technology to go to the moon and are now flying remote control helicopters on Mars. Doesn't compute. I could see a jetskier failing for it, but for us no way.

    Neat. In no way taking away from the accomplishment of first flight on another planet, I'm most impressed by the fact that we can launch essentially a Jeep to Mars, land it, and have it drive around taking scientific measurements for months/years. The fact that it can deploy and fly a tiny helicopter is even better. Both are awesome accomplishments and mankind should be proud.

    It's a damn sight more constructive than bombing people.
    I'm just annoyed that all the really good stuff will happen after I join the ex-parrot.
