4 wheeling is ruining Europa.

Serious question (IKR?): is color in this video what our naked eye would see? The explanatory note about how they constructed the image makes me think it might not be. Anyone expert enough to know?


#6

Another question: is the light shining from top right or bottom left? Are the linear features double ridges or double troughs?


#7

And why are they double?


#8

Looks like Wormsign !


#9

Is the moon black and white or blue and gold?

We’re going to spend a trillion dollars on UPGRADING OUR NUCLEAR ARMORY.

We’re going to spend a trillion dollars on CREATING A JET FIGHTER THAT CAN FLY LIKE A PLANE AND LAND LIKE A HELICOPTER.

Why can not we spend a trillion dollars on PUTTING A LANDING CRAFT AND A SATELLITE AROUND EVERY PLANET/MOON IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM? (If we abandoned this whole “manned” Mars landing fetish, it would be much, much cheaper than a trillion, too.) Answer: Because Conservative simians control our government. I keep forgetting.

Selfish dickwad aliens stealing the best moon for themselves.

Looks mostly accurate. Here’s a photo from the Galileo mission:

They’re ruled by the religious right, who insist that the earth is the only planet worth knowing anything about in the entire universe, and that the world will end soon anyway, so what does it matter?


#17

So people can drive on opposite sides. Duh!
