SpaceEngineer, you still have a LOT of work ahead of you to grab the whole of nature's seemingly infinite weirdness, my friend.

Check this out: http://beautifulmars.tumblr.com/post....-planum

That ain't no river. Quite the opposite, really...





They let me use this!

No, there is zero risk of that.

Will the robots on Mars take pictures of the comet Sliding Spring? According to Starry Night, the magnitude will be around -5, making it visible in daylight.

On Earth, it's possible to see a -5 object in broad daylight, but you probably need to know where to look. A comet, however, is a fuzzy object and will be much harder to spot.

Perhaps the Martian sky is darker, but I still think the comet would be very hard to find in daylight.

Hopefullly at least one of the robots are on the night side of Mars smile

How come?





Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.

Finding life on Mars, while on the surface sounds good, is actually a fairly bad thing especially if it is separate branch from Earth life.

Consider the Fermi paradox, if we find life on Mars that has evolved separately from Earth life it then says that the great filter for the development of life and the evolution of life are not rare events and thus those are no longer great filters. This increases the likelihood that the great filter or filters are ahead of us and decreases our chances of long term survival.
