Very nice, that is one of the reasons why we must continue to explore Mars. Whether robotics or by man someday. Nothing wrong to see what is their.
Maybe they're blue because they're sad. Looks lonely up there.
Currently re-reading "Red Mars" by Kim Stanley Robinson, it's the first in a trilogy about the colonialzation and terraforming of Mars. Facinating read.
I've read that one, some superb descriptive writing!
At least it doesn't get hot there.
Send some men & technology up there, & in 2 million years or so - Martian Warming!
I don't believe this. Someone send me there and I'll report in full.
How about you and I go....
lets take some really big antennas and since the FCC doesn't regulate communications there we will take a really big amplifier and we can send back slow scan images of the sunsets.
It's a date!
If you're going to report via SSTV, at least ONE of you needs to bring a bikini!
It is mandatory for transmissions using that mode .
My god, man... I can't do that! Thiink of the children. THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!
Toby, I was looking at your QRZ webpage and was about to read your bio, and for some reason my eyes stuck on, "I've been in over 2 dozen Jails"...
...installing calltaking equipment for enhanced 911 systems.
! Now ^^ that right there ^^ is funny !
A few years of terraforming, then the surprising find of alien spacecraft, some face huggers, and we have the makings of a good scifi movie series.
...Prometheus, are you seeing this?...
We have to send a ham so somebody can finally claim the Elser-Mathes Cup.

What the heck does a JAIL need with a 911 system? [I know all about panic systems]
I've been in a couple dozen jails myself, from Colorado to California and from near mexico to near Canada. Inmates all over the west eat thanks to me. We have probably crossed paths at one project meeting or another.
I did see a couple of guys not get out when they thought they would. Should have paid those tickets, they should have!
Inmates don't need it. I dunno how it is out west, but in lower population areas of the east and mid-west, dispatch centers are often co-located with city and county lockups, so the phones and ANI/ALI display stuff goes in there... unless the EMS/Fire folks win the battle for control of consolidated dispatch... or if nobody wins said battle, and then there are multiple call taking locations for the same area of service... wasteful but it happens.
