Woop woop! Nuclear powered car-sized rover landed on mars from a computer guided (with landscape recognition!) jet propelled hovering crane.... Seriously, this sets all kinds of new standards

Wheeeeuuuuu!!! Ok, I'm ready to live there now!  Who's with me?
EDIT: P.S.  The next rover had better be called The Mars Explorer.

I didnt really like how they spent over millions on millions of dollars just to find out if Mars could hold life or did at once. Millions of dollars that could have gone to making America better and the debt and all that good stuff that they said they had no money for. Including schools, if you can send a rover to mars and happliy spend millions on it couldnt you make better schools? Help the economy with it? Thats why I have to say I think we shouldnt be proud that the government spend all that money to make scientists happy and not on the people.

well the US spend about $16 billion of its yearly budget on NASA.  it sounds like a lot, but thats only %0.5 of what the US Gov spends its money on.  the rest of the $2.7 trillion is spend on other things like social services and such.     so in reality, several million/billion dollars isn't going to do a whole lot for a long time.   
 
 
but this is  controversial territory we be enterin' in so lets not get tooooooooooo deep into this.  :P   it hurtz mah brain

Still it just seems rediculous to spend so much on something that'll be used on something that wont help us. And you say that but schools do know how to use a lot of little they have.

yeah see what you mean.  all they want to do is answer questions.  but i think NASA and JPL kinda take sides with this quote from Benjamin Franklin.  when someone asked him about what the purpose of a balloon was, he replied saying, "What use is a newborn baby?"  all they do is eat, cry, and sleep and we seem to get no benefit from them. so why waste our time with them?  
 
its kind of like the same with this.  why waste time and money investing in a robot that is made to just answer questions?     dang. im getting too sucked into this.  lol :P a;shfsjls  IMA YUMMY CHEEZBURGER!! :D:D:D

Hey, by any chance does anyone know where to get a 3D model of the rover?  I was hoping to be able to make a world commemorating the landing, and it would be kind of nice to be able to include it.
