I was wondering what the rover uncovered.

Too bad they didn't send any microbes or asparagus seeds to plant.  :)
Here is a link to the two rovers.  Incidentally we really got our moneys worth out of them... The missions were to last 90 days... they are on their third year...

Here is a link to the newest lander although not a rover...

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Living on mars would be great as long as it doesn't look like Total Recall....

Doesn't the apocolypse include all creation or was it limited to earth?

Only to make sure you adhere to the building code... ::)

So what does that mean for us?  I mean Mankind?  Remember, if we were meant to really travel, live, or subsist in the Heavens, let alone another planet, we would have been born out there, live there, or able to travel or live out there without the aid of machines (rocket ships, star ships, etc.).  Earth was created for Man, animals, and whatever other living organisms and things are now here as a result of that initial creation.  The other planets are void and/or hostile to humans and other living things that live on our planet; and...space is even more hostile with no atmosphere, air, or any type environment hospitable to humans and/or other living things on our planet; therefore, we can assess that we were meant to be right here on Mother Earth and no where else (one of the reasons why we have gravity, to keep us down here).  We may go to Mars, other planets, or possibly other solar systems one day, but granted we will not live there like most dream about or think.

This logic is incorrect. What if one day we were to terraform Mars, creating a sustainable enviroment in which we could live without the aide of machinery?

If we were intended to stay here on this planet, why would our creator give us the ability to build and design these vessels which allow us to leave our planets atmosphere?

Once again Stephen, these lies and misquotes from the extreme left/socialist sources which you rely on display nothing more than a basic ignorance of the Universe.

The earth is demonstrably flat, as I have proven with multiple charts and graphs, and which has been verified by centuries of alchemists and wizards who do not share your quaint "conservative" reliance on 'Science".

So Stephen, please, the world wants to know.  If the world is flat, as you yourself have proven unable to debunk, How are we supposed to believe that Mars could possible support life?

well River, this sounds like a straw man argument to me.

So, now you are making up fictitious quotes?  Interesting debating tactic.  Did you learn this at Harvard?  Was this during your undergraduate years there or was it perhaps in law school?   :D :D

So what kind of lifespan are they expecting from the probe?  The article stated the the original mission was set at 90 days but then extended.

If the mars rovers are any yardstick it could last much longer than 90 days... the rovers are on their third year of a 90 day mission... :o

Good point.  It boggles me that NASA would spend the mega millions to launch such a complicated piece of equipment into space and land it on Mars for only a 90 day mission.  I'm sure there is some beuracratic reason for it though.

I love this stuff... right now we have two rovers alive and well on Mars and now the Pheonix probe has found ice and habitable soil...

Microbes or bacteria are next.... Wahoo!!!!!

Maybe we lived on Mars and ended up colonizing Earth!
