I’m so happy that the space program is still being funded, this mission looks fascinating.


#3

It’s about time to start probing back!


#4

Don’t get too comfortable, NASA’s gonna keep probing Uranus for a while


#5

I wish! It has been left unmolested since 1986, and the last and only time when it was probed, it was a very brief affair. We should do it more often.


#6

Hopefully the present administration does not wreck them missions.


#7

what a boring project.

(a little driller humor there)


#8

Ba-dum dum


#9


The planned flights aren’t very long duration, but it’s amazing that it will fly at all.


#10

watch out mole people; we’re coming for you!


#11

10 POINTS TO POTTSYLVANIA!

(And acknowledging the assist from Elon Musk)

I would love any machine that included a “self-hammering mole”, but a Mars lander with a self-hammering mole is just too wonderful for words. (-:
