It looks like that fried egg gif.

That reminds me...I need to pick up Clearasil.

Set it to Lady Gaga and it can be positively mesmerizing.

Mars must be really tiny for a 3mm hole to show up from orbit.

It took me a while to figure out it was a close-up.
For a second there I thought the folks at NASA had gone completely bonkers.
That got damn circular framing.

That's what they get.

LEELA: What about the Great Stone Ass of Mars?

ZAPP: Well, yeah, but it's way over the other side of the planet.

I can see where this is going

Let's review: we sent a robot with a laser through space to shoot holes into Mars. For science.

2012-10-24 05:24:40 PM  
Now we've gone and done it.
2012-10-24 05:44:05 PM  
To heck with it - set that thing to full power and record how long it takes to burn through a rock.
2012-10-24 05:44:42 PM  
I can't stop watching that....

Where's the Earth Mars shattering kaboom? There was supposed to be a kaboom.

Seriously though, think about it for a moment. A human sitting on the planet Earth used a computer to tell a robot on the planet Mars to shoot at stuff with a laser beam. Did you ever think you would really live in a world where that's even remotely possible? Somewhere inside my psyche 8 year old me's jaw is sitting on the floor.

Duh, this is America, not some wussy socialist Yurpeein metric-using place!

That's 3millionmiles, of course!

Nice laser our baby Bolo is packin'.
2012-10-25 12:51:25 AM  
There's a warning sign on the side of it that says "Do not look into Laser with remaining eyepod".
2012-10-25 03:51:15 AM  
We struck first. Now we wait.
2012-10-25 05:23:51 AM  
Wait, what? They sent Johnny 5 to Mars?

Lol. You have to admit though, the media fallout (no pun intended) from that would be hillarious to behold.

Also, from the comments there:

I just love the irony that earth landed a saucer shaped disk on Mars and now a robot with a laser gun is going around vaporizing things.

At this very moment, microscopic Martians are screaming in terror. (I think I may do a "IT CAME FROM EARTH" 'shop later when I have some time...)
