Mars—”Let’s do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel” has a new, more cosmic, meaning today. NASA scientists watched, in horror, as the latest rover footage from the red “hot” planet reveals the Spirit lander “scouting out” the Scout probe. NASA believes that the blackout period in January of 2004 was all part of this insidious rover rendezvous, this illegal droidian download, this planetary probe probing, this hydraulic hanky-panky, this bionic booty call, this mechanical mambo, this….I’m being told to stop.
NASA scientists are considering a phone call to PPS (Probe Protective Services) fearing the unauthorized cybernukie may not be consensual. It is likely that the video, shot by the aptly named “Opportunity”, may be deemed child pornography since none of the participants are of age.
Since commands to Opportunity have thus far been ignored, the racy spacey mating ritual may continue for the next several years, or until Opportunity blows a fuse, or blows something else.
