    Let me guess, they don`t plan on having live stream feeds for this one either?

    @747Pilot - Probably not since it`s all fake, like the moon landing, right?

    The orbital path and rotations of both Earth and Mars makes Streaming feeds impossible for more than f few seconds at a time. Getting a streaming feed from the Lunar surface is far less complicated although less interesting.

    I`m a huge fan of NASA, don`t get me wrong. But I kept expecting this to be an Onion video and was waiting for a scientist to say that the next Mars rover would have the ability to strew cigarette butts, banana peels, plastic bags, and used condoms across the planet`s surface.

    Isn`t this what Curiosity was supposed to do?

    TheZigRat: Hey it`s the effort that counts.. why do NASA guys get to see it and the rest of the wrold doesn`t? I`d take a few seconds, or even 1 frame per second for 8 hours every 4 days.. or whatever. They see it, why not all of mankind?

    whodat6484: is that what you believe? I haven`t been to the moon so i have no idea. why do you think it`s fake? and why do you think the moon landing was fake?

    @ 747Pilot: NASA hosts the Curiosity images online and makes the raw images available almost as soon as they`re received. If 115,217 images (and counting) aren`t enough for you, I`ve got to wonder what you`re looking for.

    Rather than looking for past life, shouldn`t we be looking to see if it could support future life so we can move there and burn that one out when we`ve finished doing this one?

    @ 747Pilot: My pleasure; hope I didn`t come off as snarky. You`re from Canada, so no worries--but it dismays me how often Americans have little or no idea what our own NASA scientists do and what they make available to the public. If it`s in space, or it can be studied from space (e.g., Earth`s climate), chances are NASA`s put up one or more satellites, probes, or rovers to study it and has several decades of excellent data available online.

    747: I think Whodat is just being funny, playing the usual conspiracy nut that pops up in discussions.
