Too bad they have Illudium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulators.

Our rover is toast.

THIS!

I was gobsmacked when I saw the landing procedure (skycrane dropping it onto the ground, then detaching and flying away!). Absolutely nuts. The people who approved this method really need a flogging. God what a waste of money this will be....

Those Martian motherfarkers are going DOWN. I propose the next mission to mars feature a rover with a rail-gun turret and thermobaric missiles. It's the next natural step before we nuke those Martian bastards out of existence.

Illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator will have no problem taking out a laser.

Love that album! The Tom Middleton remix of "Eve of War" is pretty hot too, if you can find it.
