The team is mindful that Nasa's Spirit rover was lost in a sand trap in 2009.

Curiosity will just play through.

The sand bank is currently blocking the robot's path into a small valley

GET IN THE HOLE!

The only thing that deserves to be named after General Lee is a cow patty, because praise for him is bullsh*t.

They didn't just take a stroke and drop another outside of the trap?

We don't know because they claimed to have never packed a microphone in their payload.  Cause who would want to hear Martian wind?

But if they did pack a microphone.. They would of heard that Transformer sneak up on our rover and trash it.

You mistake false history for Current Fact.

The North couldn't fight its way out of a wet paper bag today. You've tried to outlaw guns while down here, we celebrate guns. In the South, we've seen Yankees but we had to pay Admission first. Maybe if you ate some of your makeup, you'd be pretty on the inside. Northerns are so stupid they trip over a cordless phone and it's so cute when ya'll try to talk about things you don't understand.

It's stuck... but is it still transmitting data? Obviously if it's not moving around, it wouldn't be as interesting... but if it was still transmitting, it could keep a record atmospheric or weather data for that one spot for as long as it works, right? Maybe for the next generation of rovers, aside from improving their ability to get unstuck, they may consider adding sensor that would collect the maximum amount of data from a stuck position in case that happens again.

Nope.

You mistake the entire north for the northeast and west coast. We here in the midwest, especially Indiana, are very well armed.

Yeah, totally no guns at all north of the Mason-Dixon Line, and no one there who would know how use them if they did.

I think what gets lost in all of this is that here we are, sitting at our computers, looking at pictures of the surface of Mars and all we can think is "oh neat" and then go back to trolling each other.

The fact that this isn't blowing our minds is amazing.

No, shiat, this thread makes me feel old. Reference one of the most famous cars on TV and it turns into a Civil War debate.

Anyway, The Dukes of Hazzard was recently re-transferred from its original film to HDTV and is running on cable now, so you kids can catch up realize this is not about North vs. South but about condemning every last 1969 Dodge Charger ever made to a silly orange paint job and a broken chassis for your entertainment.

Naming something after  THE General Lee is long overdue. It's not that awesome car's fault it's named after a Confederate general.
