The time to get there may have been shorter than usual as Mars has been in sight for quite a long time. I have been spotting it very often on my way home on Mondays just after 10 pm.

Quite an amazing result. From thousands to zero, with no broken bones.

Brilliant.
:D

I have a sneaky feeling about this mission and have had since I read about it. I think examining underneath the planet is going to find something that might change the way we think about the world.

I'm not talking alien civilisations but just pure and simple some sort of fossilized remains of something living. Would certainly be huge.

A single trace of anything organic on Mars (or anywhere other than Earth) would be the biggest news in our lifetime, fundamentally reordering our view of ourselves for ever. I hope I live to see it happen.
