Yeah, just like I said in the title, NASA spent over 993 million US dollars to build a hunk of crap that just sits there and does freaking nothing but measures earthquakes. Why? Apparently within the quakes measurements they will find…yes…wait for it…wait for it…the answers to the universe!
Look, what I’m saying is this hunk of garbage has no wheels, so the only new photos of Mars coming from it will be objects that either blow past it or walk past it. Yes, I mean walk, just like the Mars white rabbit did many years ago…great HD photos here at this post if you copy/past this link below.
American high school students could make a more useful lander than this! Elon Musk could do better and with only 20% the price…and his would travel across Mars on autopilot taking photos of everything it encounters…but no, not NASA. They build one that does one thing only and nothing else!
NASA is an organization that is clearly out of control and needs to be placed in 100% control of the public hands. They are over spending and they are under thinking projects. A set of six metal wheels would only cost $600,000 dollars if made at NASA, but if Elon Musk did it, it would cost $600. NASA has truly brought shame to the world of science and the American name tied to NASA.
