That drone helicopter should give some interesting Mars pics. 🤞

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Congratulations to them - a Rover on Mars........My son's ex girlfriend was one of the volunteers who were involved in the assessment of the entries to nominate its name. There was some sort of competition that children entered to choose the name and they had to also provide an essay to support their choice of name.

Not a Land/Range Rover though. I remember one of the newspaper headlines saying someone had found a London bus on the moon.

Haha, I don't think the rover has a controller for the drone! It it's anything like the rover, it'll be a pre-programmed flight with some AI mixed in. 

I'm sure they don't have the 500m or VLOS legal maximum distance either which I hope you're not been breaking! :police:

The landing film is astonishingly good. I can’t get my head around we are filming things in relatively high definition and watching close up film from around 200 Million miles away. Stunning. 😳

Just good luck I think. All the flat ones are hard to see as they're probably end-on to us and really thin, like a flat Pringle!

Why are all the planets that we have found seemingly spherical?

A planet is round because of gravity. A planet's gravity pulls equally from all sides. Gravity pulls from the center to the edges like the spokes of a bicycle wheel. This makes the overall shape of a planet a sphere, which is a three-dimensional circle.

 

I wonder if dark mater planets are also almost spherical or are they only visible via the dark web.

As opposed to what, flat?
