A Hole in Humphrey (false color)

This false-color image taken by the panoramic camera on the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit shows the rock dubbed "Humphrey" and the hole drilled into the rock by the rover. Spirit ground into the rock with the rock abrasion tool located on its robotic arm on the 60th martian day, or sol, of its mission. Scientists are investigating the freshly exposed rock with the scientific instruments on the arm. Spirit is about halfway to a large crater nicknamed "Bonneville." This image was made by combining data from the camera's different wavelength filters. The particular filters used were chosen to enhance features of scientific interest.

I dont understand one thing, who cares about mars except the government and geeks like u people who are willing to scab more of nation(tax,gst, etc.) to spend it on some crap like this. Why would anyone care about mars when we got our own planet earth and its the best one ever anyway. Why the hell you people would wanna go to F**KEN SH*T hole like that. anyway its just i think that some people are starwing on the streets and u spend the money on bull SH*T like that. I hope next time i a read something on this site, it will be something about government spending the money on mental kids or other human problems

Hey John thanks for calling me a geek I feel quite proud now and I thought I was just a dumb housewife Smile

If you care about goverment spending or poverty etc then a mars forum is unlikely to help you in your quest for changes but there are many internet sites that you can visit that may inspire you to help bring the changes you want to see a quick google turned up this one but there a loads. http://www.makepovertyhistory.org/
