They’re just rover-curious.

Surely curiosity leads to opportunity, no?

Alternately, perhaps the implication is that Curiosity will carry Oppy’s last words on.

If it’s not Homer Simpson, it’s probably a tattoo you can live with.

Curiosity will probably fail due to broken wheels. I suspect its last message will be “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”

Of course, I think it’s might be more scientifically rock’n’roll if you just commit to it as a mistake, but an intentional and glorious mistake…

Accuracy is important in both science and tattoos.

Nope. Accuracy is required for science since it’s everything that keeps us alive.

Tattoos are just drawings on skin done with a Sharpie. You got someone to colour you in by hurting you. Yay!

They just need to add some solar panel wings and it will be fine as an artistic interpretation.

I can’t tell the difference. I think it’s cool.

That’s the wrong Ringo, though.

(I’ve decided I’m going to start calling The Beatles, “The Ringos” from now on. It’ll be just like the Ramones: George Ringo, John Ringo, Paul Ringo, and Ringo Ringo.)

Haven’t we been here before? Never get a Martian tattoo unless you can speak Martian.

  1. It’s a beautiful tattoo (of the wrong rover)
  2. The last words? :cry:

Yeah. I see nasa eggheads are designing new memory material wheels to deal with this problem for future missions. It’d be somewhat gutting to have your rover break down because of its wheels and not because of one of the many delicate bits of electronics failing.

I`m finally going to get a tattoo to express my unique personality, just like everybody else.

Great point. Even if the image was of the correct rover, what a strange choice for the message.
