    Agreed. We need to start cloning poor minority voters and illegal immigrants before we worry about dinosaurs so we can get our VOTER FRAUD on.

    Why would this be the case?

    First two points taken, although I think they counsel more for caution in taking theories about those topics as fact than granting science a license to speculate. As for the third, that may be right in the abstract, but I don't think it has much to do with TW's prognostications about the fate of the earth.

    Back to the topic of the thread--the fact that we can control a robot on Mars that sends us pictures and can run tests on Martian soil is pretty incredible.

    Also, for giving me a biological justification I can sell my wife on for wanting to touch the hiney of pretty much every girl I see.

    There's going to be a live webcast of a supernova starting at midnight tonight. That's pretty fucking cool.

    I don't care what they tell you, it's not live. It happened millions of years ago.

    You'd think NASA would have done a better job designing the wheels on this guy. Sucks.
