Not true at all! Rovers have only been landed on the Moon and Mars. Stationary landers have been sent to the above two worlds, plus Venus and Titan. But aside from those four worlds, humanity has never placed functioning technology on any other significant planetary body. The few other views we've gotten from the other planets have come from orbiters or flyby missions. Neither Uranus nor Neptune has seen even one dedicated mission launched to it. Only one probe has ever orbited Jupiter. The same goes for Saturn and Mercury. The rate at which we launch space probes is less than the rate at which we will launch people once settlement of other worlds begins.


How I should have worded it is that exploring the planets via machines doesn't seam to interest as many people as it used to with the technology that we have today.

I'm still stoked about another great feat but I just missed the landing! Bugger.

I don't think I observed them going down either, but they did report that it happened. They say it's back up now.

I also don't know how much delay I have on my stream.
