Dear Listers:

Through the Mars Rover projects, humans have now become the
aliens. 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?
