Another waste of taxpayer money. So we collect information that is of interest to perhaps a dozen scientists. Big deal.

NASAS way out of touch...

Why should people get excited about a probe being sent to Mars 7 years from now?

Who does that excite?

Many will be dead by then...

People want things now, today, yesterday...

Why does it take 7 long years to send a lawn mower sized robot to Mars?

This is how they loose public interest, which equates into funding...cause they drag their feet and take way to long to accomplish things that should of been done in the 1960's...not 2020...

Instead of retireing the space shuttles...we should of left them in orbit, and used them to fly to the moon or to mars...

heck, they were already up there...we should of left them in space...
