I’ve been remiss in not including more information about the spectacular performance of the Mars Rovers. 213 Sols for Spirit, 192 Sols for Opportunity and over 3000 meters.
Now, I don’t believe that the U.S. is a signatory to the Moon Treaty, which basically forbids nations from claiming extraterrestrial objects as terratory, but I wonder, are we establishing the beginnings of ownership for Mars? Jupiter? Saturn? Not Venus, we’d have to share that with the Russians…
What do you think?
