You don’t have to read it if you don’t want to. Though that goes for everything here of course.

Great Video in a Great Shirt…

The Planetary Society’s Emily Lakdawalla (@elakdawalla) gets a tour of the Jet Propulsion Lab booth from NASA’s Doug Ellison (@doug_ellison) at the 44th annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Division for Planetary Sciences.

This is a great video and a nice way to learn a bit about the behind the scenes of Curiosity.

And also… look at her awesome shirt!

Final Thoughts on Felix…

Alright, so today I’ll be sharing my final thoughts on this dummy up here – Felix Baumgartner – and his recent, idiotic thoughts on Mars, NASA, and planetary exploration in general – which you can find in The Telegraph – right here:

As a warning – things will possibly get ranty, and unresearched, and maybe I’ll shake my fist like an old man. I don’t know

A Rover and A Voyager:

On Monday Oct, 22 – while ignoring the Presidential Debate – I shared a transcript of some text-messages shared between myself and Voyager 1, a space probe launched in 1977 and currently leaving our solar system.

How @SarcasticRover Began…

On the night of Aug. 5th, 2012 the Mars Rover Curiosity landed on the red planet, and I started a fake Twitter account as a place to put some crappy space-jokes.

So if you ever wondered how it all began… This is the official record:

It’s Thursday, I’m baking muffins, let’s blog!

One of the nice things about WordPress is that it lets me see the search terms people type into Google which lead them to my site. Basically, if you type “Sarcastic Rover Blog” into Google and it shows you this site and you come here, I get to know about it (though not about you).

Fun right? Read on…
