John Holdren deserves respect for putting aside his green baggage to celebrate America's engineering prowess in becoming the first nation to land an SUV on Mars.

I camped out to watch it live (well, I was going to be awake and on the internet then anyway; might as well geek out with an historic event in space science). So much joy, they even let a little profanity slip into the stream. :)

You guys are so gullible -- the whole thing is a hoax. It's all part of a plot to take hard-earned tax dollars from god-fearing Americans and give it to liberal scientists.

Great post. Question is, will the Chinese be the first to actually land a man on the red planet?
