Kicking at my console.


I don’t know about you folks but I was pretty impressed with NASA’s latest mission to Mar’s The logistics of pulling this feat off boggles me.  I was up watching alive JPL feed on the NASA’s online channel when the first images were being beamed back.

It takes 14 minutes for the signal to hit Earth. In comparison it took NBC over 22 hours to beam the Olympics in London to our TV sets.

“In the long run, a single-planet species will not survive. One day, I don’t know when, but one day, there will be more humans living off the Earth than on it.”
NASA director Mike Griffin, quoted in “Mars or Bust,”
Rolling Stone, 2006
