Curiosity Killed The Cat… And Then It Conquered Time And Space To Land On Mars

Filed under: Etc.Inspiration

For those of you who requiring an extra bit of encouragement this week, we invite you to watch the Curiosity rover land on Mars.

Its nine month, 352 million mile journey from our planet to the next culminated in an unpredictable seven minute landing sequence that turned out to be more thrilling than just about any fiction we can remember.

Curiosity is a manmade mobile science lab designed to travel to Mars, land without smashing into a trillion pieces, keep a keen robotic eye out for signs of past or present life, and then report back it's findings.

Watch the animated simulation of its landing cut with reaction shots of scientists and engineers watching the live drama unfold (above).

These men and women spent the better part of their careers constructing a marvelous piece of machinery but, on this day, they could do nothing but hope and pray.

We won't trivialize this momentous achievement with John Carter jokes or an ill-suited hyperbole. The video speaks for itself.

On some days, it's just inspiring to be part of the human race.

NASA Finds Elephant On Mars! Sorta!

Do U think this is an elephant?!

Similar to finding figures on the back of animals, cheeseburgers, and chicken nuggets, NASA has found Dumbo on MARS!

Due to lava flow on the Red Planet, a crater formation has the appearance of an elephant.

Scientists call this pareidolia, the case where you see bunnies in clouds and things of that nature.

Has anyone seen John Carter up there? We hear he's doing big things! LOLz!

Filed under: Film FlickersZportzDisneyPerezTV

Looks epic!

Check out the newly-released trailer (above) for Disney's John Carter, which debuted last night at the Super Bowl!

When we saw the first trailer for this movie back in December, it seemed to us like it was basically Prince of Persia in space…but we're starting to think there might be more to it!

It IS being directed by the the guy made Wall-E, after all!

What do U think? Will U check out John Carter when it comes out next month???

We're glad to see that M&M's won't put up with such deplorable behavior!

Earlier this month, NASCAR racer Kyle Busch "purposefully wrecked" Ron Hornaday Jr. during a Truck Series race at Texas.

As a result, Busch was fined $50,000, he was put on probation for the rest of the season, AND M&M's will no longer sponsor him.

Here's what Mars Chocolate North America chief consumer Debra A. Sandler had to say about it:
