    Original message 10 pounds of plutonium dioxide (nuclear fuel for probe) to be launched next week to Mars.

    It's the onboard reactor for NASA's $2.5Bln Curiosity probe. Amazing piece of machinery, hands down. I was watching the laser zapping rocks in the video at the link and I was all "Damn! How big are the solar panels going to unfold to power that thing. Hey...where are the solar panels?"



    If you want to see the most complex and improbable-looking landing sequence for a space probe, ever, check out the video at the link.

    I hope a hundred million things fail to fuck up- especially during the launch, which is happening this Saturday.

    It has a cool laser cannon and probably a pepper spray dispenser...:eek::D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Now why would you want to do that to this guy???



    He's had enough problems dealing with Bugs Bunny stealing his Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator and dueling Duck Dodgers on Planet X, the only source in the galaxy for Illudium Phosdex, the shaving cream atom, and now you want to send these OWieS to his home planet? This will makes him very angry, very angry indeed.

    They can all be very angry together, though. Maybe he can pick up a protest sign and pace back and forth.

    Actually I'd hope he'd use his disintegration pistol to take care of the problem of the OWS infestation of Mars.
