Landing on other planets for the purpose of exploration. The updates on Opportunity and the attempts to revive Spirit were written as if the rovers were the mechanical children of humans. They were sent by their parents - us - to go a roving through the planetary system and landed on Mars. Think about it... The proverbial shoe, in this case, is on the other foot. Are we sending the message that we come in peace, simply to explore? Or, is the four year old expressing how we really feel? KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
