As excited as I am thinking about the Curiosity rolling around Mars looking at cool rocks, I can never help but think of this classic, tragic XKCD about the fate of the Mars Spirit.
Maybe now that I’ve seen Wall-E, I’m more prone to feel sympathy for cute robots, but whatever the case, this always makes me sniffle just a little bit.
Someday we’ll have a manned mission to Mars, Curiosity. And we’ll bring you back. You’re doing a good job.
