It's all fun and games until Curiousity breaks out the X pills and starts twirling glowsticks.

So Mars is like a motel that charges by the hour.

Not just any penny, but a vintage 1909 penny.

It does have a serious purpose, it is part of one of the calibration targets.

The MAHLI one in question.

For the MastCam.

For the ChemCam.

There is also a rock sample known composition for the APXS instrument to work on. This is a type of instrument that helps determine what something is made of.

There are five sealed organic check materials for the rover to drill into, collect, and analyze with its chemistry instruments. These are made up of a known material that scientists are sure will not be found in nature. If organics are found, these can be tested to see if the instruments give the right results with a known material and are not just some containment.

I was going to post a picture of a stereotypical 'Disco Dude', but when this turned up in the GIS, I went with it
instead:

This makes me wonder. Just how dark is night on Mars?

It would be cool if something that only came out at night on Mars started running around.

I would say pitch black but, I'm fairly certain that didn't take place on Mars.

I can see that, we have a friend that carried a portable black light while we were camping.
He shine it on the ground and find all kinda of rocks that would glow under black light.

Very soon every single rock and outcrop on Mars will have it's own name.

Never wander off to take a pee in the desert at night without one. Scorpions glow too.
