This was only part of the story; here’s the rest:
Not surprising at all…
The American space agency has successfully flown a small helicopter on Mars.
The drone, called Ingenuity, was airborne for less than a minute, but Nasa is celebrating what represents the first powered, controlled flight by an aircraft on another world.
Confirmation came via a satellite at Mars which relayed the chopper’s data back to Earth.
The space agency is promising more adventurous flights in the days ahead.
What, like a manned one? 😉
I can’t link to it for various reasons, but I just saw a photograph of a magazine rack in an Ontario Wal-Mart, where magazines had been replaced by large bags of potato chips. (Reading is a non-essential activity, but scarfing down mega chips is OK, according to Fat Fuck Ford.)
Now, most of the magazine rack was dedicated to mental junk food – National Enquirer, People, US, and other such crap – but not all, and I’m not sure replacing mental junk food with actual junk food is an improvement.
One kills brain cells; the other, kills your body…
Such is life today, in the Ontarian Reich…
