I mean- what a Rube Goldberg arrangement for landing- a kudo and another.... brilliant.
Then I read about Louisiana and Jindal and the bone headed stuff they are teaching, like
"Bible-believing Christians cannot accept any evolutionary interpretation. Dinosaurs and humans were definitely on the earth at the same time and may have even lived side by side within the past few thousand years."
This is from a school text book. Really.
Uhhh.... I don't think any if them will be designing a Mars Lander any time soon.
