  1. Awesome, outstanding, critically import, knowledge expanding, fun, exciting, adventuresome, kid-like…as a nation we MUST NOT abandon these marvelous efforts…our species was meant to pioneer and homestead !

  2. It took at least 3,000 people working for sometimes as long as 10 years to get the rover there and ready to go.

    Hats off to them and their hard work! Where else can we explore?
