Hogwallow Flats? Have we started allowing Garrison Keillor to name Martian geography now?

The FSM placed it there as a warning: “All these worlds are yours except Deimos. Attempt no landing there. Use them in peace. Ramen.”

on the bright side, no animals are going to mistake it for food anytime soon.

really, we humans have dropped ( off handed guess ) about 10-20 cars worth of robots and probes. in the grand scheme of things doesn’t seem too bad in exchange for learning what’s out there

when - or if - we get to colonization or terra forming i think there might be more of a worry about losing something unique. right now, the reason it’s finding its own debris is precisely because its range and our impact are so small

i think it’ll be interesting to see how long they hold up with the wind storms. a hundred years, a thousand? still unclear if our ancestors will exist to have a chance to find out
