    Your ignorance and lack of curiosity concerning space, science, and almost anything that involves large synopsis coordination is becoming almost legendary in its profound and all encompassing indication of incompetence...it's actually a bit sad.

    An autonomous drone actually makes very good sense when exploring Mars.

    :shock: Look, don't blame me - I'm only the messenger? Blame NASA, they're the ones who are hoodwinking you, not me! [​IMG]

    Yeah...apparently I get "Hoodwinked" quite a bit, I even thought we sent rovers to Mars, landed probes on Titan (a moon of Saturn for weak minds like yours), explored and took pictures of all the planets (even dwarf planets). I guess we never landed on the moon or launched dem fake rocket ships neither.

    Even that one surpassed your original oral flatulence.

    Wake up and smell it - can't you see they're fooling you? I read last night that this 'helicopter' (or 'Marscopter' as they're calling it now - baby-talk or what??) is going to be miniaturized - think 'Fantastic Voyage'?

    I would suggest you avoid using the word "Think" as completely as the function.

    :wall: Unbelievable - even when someone points it out to you that white is white, you still say it's black? They've fooled you big-time, but don't let it get to you, because they've fooled millions and millions of others as well, so you're not the only one by any stretch of the imagination.

    See...here's the thing Cerebralimitation, when thousands of highly educated and specialized individuals along with extreme documentation say one thing and it is questioned and opposed by someone proven to be purposefully ignorant if not mentally deficient I have no choice logically but to go with the former. No offense intended but virtually everything you type is irrelevant banter.

    Ever heard the story about the king's new clothes? The multitude was told to believe he was resplendent in them, so doubting their own judgement, they came to believe it, even saying how nice he looked in them. Then out of nowhere came a boy who saw the the king was naked, but the brainwashed multitude refused to believe it, thus proving they were wrong and the boy was right. So - would you be one of the multitude, or would you be the boy? Think carefully about that question, because you might not like the answer.

    Ever heard of Chicken Little....After careful consideration of your interesting fable analogy I have come to the conclusion that mental deficiency is the most likely explanation for you and purposeful ignorance is simply a manifestation of the underlying condition. The alternate and more interesting reality would be that you are playing a Troll game and giggling every time you post as the incompetent you pretend to be.
    Either way I find it rather fun to belittle you in front of everyone watching and knowing they all agree with my assessment.

    A TitanCopter might be doable, as Titan has an atmosphere about as dense as earth's. The trick would be to keep it from freezing. Maybe put a plutonium-238 heat source in it. With Titan's low gravity, it might be able to manage the weight. But there's also the shortage of Pu-238 to consider.

    The really hard part is flying the helicopter TO Mars.

    If NASA says it can be done, that's good enough for me! :blankstare:
