    I was captivated by the tire tracks left by the rover... they just go off into the distance.

    Another thought I had is that the rover will be on Mars long after we have gone extinct... along with all the traces of human life here on earth... they will all be gone and that rover will still be there on the red planet.

    Maybe I am just tired and am putting entirely too much thought into it :eusa_shifty:
