    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Just so everyone knows, in reality, it takes about 4.3 minutes for a radio signal from Mars to reach Earth (and vice versa) when they are closest to each other and about 21 minutes when farthest away (on opposite sides of the Sun). Therefore, the events as depicted in this video (often appearing as if they were real-time) aren't entirely accurate.

    By the way, are you noticing how much crap we're leaving in space and on Mars? Why aren't the environmentalists caterwauling more?
