I don't think Val could fit in the rover.

Is like to carry an moss, un like moss humping a tree. Riding a tree.

Id like to carry something that climbs me like a tree.

I'd like to be a tree that moss climbs, and maybe a bird carries something.

I'm no good at this. I hope she likes idiots.

It isn't the number of cameras that matters, it is how you use them.

The part about data rates is an interesting consideration for any future human habitation of Mars.  How many relay satellites would be needed to support the data use that you'd see from having 100 people living on Mars?  I know it wouldn't be real-time, but I'd think people on Mars would want to watch movies and stuff.

Even with caching it seems like we'd need a shiatload of bigger antennas up there to transmit the kind of data needs a crew to Mars would want.

23 cameras and all it sent were duck-lip selfies.

Again going to Mars and looking at our shoes.
When do we send the balloon?

As long as it had a big switch on the top which toggles between [explore in peace] and [murder all the scientists].
