Curiosity Mars Rover

As a youngster, outer-space and the possibly of travelling to off-world destinations fascinated me, This is especially true of Mars. Mars was always had me carrying the hope of finding some kind of life out there. The Viking missions were awe inspiring.

Now though, these feelings have largely abandoned me. The Curiousity Mars Rover is just another 1 minute story. And as for this ‘7 Minutes of Terror’ thing [the descent to the planet], who the hell plastered that damn ‘terror’ label on it. For pity’s sake! If ever a stinging slap was deserved, it should go to the person who ‘marketeered’ that.

What happened?

Many things probably. Massive disillusionment with the lies and spin within physical science. Shock at the great sums of money and resources wasted on it, while almost 1 billion people go hungry at the end of every day. The weaponisation of science, the politicisation of science, an attempted secularisation/hijacking of science. I have come to see the shit of this world [human acts] covering many of the things I used to hold very dear to my heart. And all the signs are that it’s going to get worse. Much worse. Plus, the realisation there are just some things that we are almost never likely to be able to do.

All this leaves me very sad. The Curiosity Mars Rover has once again makes me remember my young mans optimism for the world and the species – a young man who was brought up ignorant of the monumental failings of the world. Perhaps the worlds crap was deliberately hidden from me, or perhaps not. When young, reading about historical and contemporary wars etc, I would have never imagined anything like suddenly inflicting itself upon my surroundings. I would have totallly not understood why bomds destruction and death were suddenly around me. No, wars and ‘global crap’ were a thing of history. Sure, The Lebanon, Iraq-Iran war were on the TV, but it didn’t really resister and/or it was very quickly forgotten that somewhere, bullets were flying and people were dying.

How different and unexpected my mature elderly life has turned out to be, and boy!, how much crap there is!

Even if Mars was in the news today was discussing its colonisation, I doubt it would have much meaning and significance to me today. We would just be exporting the Earth’s crap onto another unfortunate place.

No doubt the Curiosity Mars Rover reports will seed a new young generation who stupefy themselves with the ‘glories’ of science (chiefly sci-fi and ‘big-talk’ dressed as  science) while their neighbours are spied upon and sent to to some torture dungeon somewhere, while shitty Israyhell kills more Palestinians and thieves more of Palestine.

Well now I’m beginning to recall some kind of (1980’s british TV series) where people tried to colonise Mars but (I think) In the storyline the Martians weren’t having any of it. I suddenly have the desire to watch it again. Anyone know what the series was called? – The Mars Chronicles I think – YES IT WAS !!! With Rock Hudson amongst others. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Martian_Chronicles_%28TV_miniseries%29

    Sorry ‘me’, apart from Cheyney’s ranch, your satire doesn’t come across as satire.

      me is thisisyourwakeup

      the satire was in the fact that the mars pictures were simply random pictures of the desert i selected in a few minutes on Google image

      the fact that you did not notice the difference between pics of terrestrial desert and ( we are told) pics of Mars tells me that the entire Mars stuff is TOTAL BULLSHIT

    Of course I noticed the difference. LOL. I’m saying it doesn’t have the hallmarks of satire which usually uses extremes and humour, shows contradiction, obvious mimicry etc which signposting the fact that it is satire. Your video was what one would expect from someone trying to deceive. I’ not saying that what what you set out to do, but as a work of satire, it could do with a few more touches. Put a few more signposts in it next time.
    I have doubts about the mars rover too, as I do about the moon landings.

      well not one person out of 200 said ‘hang on a minute those pics are of earth

      i guess sacha baron Cohen has a finer grasp of satire

        I’ll be honest with you. When I saw the non-mars stuff, I began to think “Oh no, Pauls come across some fake pics and hasn’t realised it, believs they are from mars, and has included them in his video!” I didn’t have the heart to say this directly even though the ‘Cheyneys ranch’ bit strongly suggested you were just having a laugh. Perhaps I’m being too critical. Probably no need to pay attnetion to grouchy old me and my judgements on it. Other people could well have thought it a very good piece.
        But I do strongly believe satire should be labelled so (somehow), otherwise what’s the difference between it and that of those who wear star of David underpants?

        “sacha baron Cohen has a finer grasp of satire” – Now I definitely know you are joking.
