8. I'm going to give thanks to science teachers too.

Those men and women who had a part in this project were probably influenced by a science teacher who was passionate about science and made science interesting and exciting for the students.

17. But all the old religions KNOW that Mars is just another point of light in the sky revolving around

the earth. Or around the pope/allah/jahweh/whatever.

It's be pretty funny to watch these old science-deniers try to land a spaceship on one of these celestial points of light that surround Mother Earth...
