our robot superstar, having made the most incredible landing ever, is getting its systems up and running - checking and double-checking everything as it begins its projected 2-year mission on the red planet. it will look for evidence of past life, among other things.  8)

I love Mars.

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids.  In fact it's cold as hell.

^ you'll have to forgive TD. He's old, and he's quoting an Elton John that's probably your parents' age.

Buhahaha.  Love this immensely.  And besides, teens ought to know Rocket Man based on those crazy William Shatner renditions at least.

Well now I feel stupid... that song was played at two concerts I've been to (after the U2 concert, and when I saw Elton John), and I have heard the William Shatner version (which is bad :P ). Guess I never listened to the lyrics.

What was this thread about again?

Don't feel too badly; I totally spaced on the song's inclusion in 360.  You can make me feel stupid for that  ;D  This thread is about a little robot with lasers!

I love that little robot with lasers :D

It would be cool if it actually did find evidence of life on Mars...
