Nice article, but the vid dumped my login into a black hole.
One other comic item is "Martian poo" but this does not appear to have adherents in the science dept. May be a good one for the science cartoonists.
The fun bit is that they were able to enable a chemical composition indicating that it is a meteorite crater wall fragment from a pan/playa deposit on mars.
Problem is the absence of an arephone on the lander(s), which would have pinpointed the location of the smoky hole in the ground.
Have a nice day: Ag
