While Curiosity might make for a great scientific achievement, there is a part of me far more interested in what people will find to protest about it. People get mad over everything, and their furor is usually quite entertaining. Has a good TV program ever capitalized off this? Perhaps Jerry Springer?
Regardless, congrats to NASA and the team behind Curiosity.
MITTENS NASA and Obama.
HOBO: What for?
MITTENS: They helped that savage escape.
MITTENS: The Mars rover, Curiosity. He killed the cat, and they helped him not only out of the country, but off the planet!
