It looks like kitty  litter.

Please, nobody post that comic. It's like one of the most heartbreaking things ever.

Hmm, the analysis tool is called CHIMRA. Does it have a lion head, a snake head and a goat head? I doubt it can breathe fire in that thin Martian atmosphere.

I'll be impressed (as a geologist) when they can put something up there that can drill a real hole, and get real core to look at.  2.5 inches...  That's hardly enough to make a geographer excited!

Eagerly anticipating the 37th time we find evidence of water on Mars.

I've always loved that xkcd.

And it isn't really sad though - despite the anthropomorphism. Some day we will develop the ability to go to Mars and return - probably not in my life time. I just hope that these tough little rovers are placed in the Smithsonian when they do return. Probably more likely that they end up in some Chinese billionaire's foyer.

I've got a 6.5 inch drill bit. Geographesses, I'm lookin' at you. How you doin'?

Heh.  He'll come some someday.  May take a few hundred years, but it will happen.

Remind your wife that at least it didn't end the way it did with Pioneer 10.  It even screamed when it was hit by disrupters.

You're crazy!  It's just a lamp. It doesn't have feelings. And the new lamp is so much better.

Don't worry. Some space cowboy and his hot red headed conwoman groupie will steal it, since it'll be a valuable artifact from Earth-That-Was.

And continue to not search for life on Mars!

We don't have enough evidence it could be there. Only confirmed liquid water once existed on the surface, methane is randomly being produced non-uniformly and destroyed at rates that shouldn't be possible based on standard dissipation, positive organic material confirmation, seasonal changes in weather similar to Canada, Hawaii like mineral despoits, etc.

It's not enough, we must keep collecting evidence!

I can't say I'd shed a tear if I were given the chance to throw you in a dumpster, no.
