Life on Mars?


My mate Ken works at Mission Control in Pasadena (California) for NASA and he called me yesterday for a bit of advice on the landing angle for the Mars probe. I cleaned up the maths a bit and emailed him what I thought to be the right approach angle, hence the successful landing overnight. The Mars probe is there to look for signs of life. This is an early image! Don't these people just get bloody everywhere?

My good friend Bag would have you believe that the Americans didn't even get to the moon, let alone Mars and that it is all just a conspiracy. Bag knows all about conspiracies having solved Dallas , November '63 using only the internet and a bottle of vodka.

Ok, I do frequent SB's when I need a fix. I am glad they have staked out a place on Mars b/c if my kitchen isn't done soon I am going there.
