CBS: What' next for Curiosity rover's Mars mission?

How can they even consider moving on to the next point on the agenda? The Mars rover has just begun to scrape the surface of this intriguing planet and I mean that in the literal sense of the word.

It has gathered up some ground samples and rocks so far, and drove itself around the block so to speak. I am aware that in itself is quite an accomplishment, but it doesn't confirm what the scientists believe and hope to find: signs that there once was life on Mars.

And that is what totally baffles me. I don't understand how after spending all that money on developing, building, and ensuring the rover reached its final destination, there was not a small amount left to equip this machine with ground penetrating radar.

If the scientists are so convinced that life and probably civilization existed billions of years ago, then they also ought to know that most of the potential structures would have returned to dust by now.

All that would remain are the foundations, but those would be covered by several feet of dust and can't be seen with the naked eye, let alone the rover's cameras. Everyone knows that the majority of the treasures are usually found in and not on the ground.

They could at least have equipped the Curiosity with a metal detector. Who knows what they would have uncovered by now. A good example is the video I watched the other day of someone in New Zealand sweeping the beach.

I don't know how many rings and coins he found, but it was astonishing. I sure wouldn't mind going there, renting one of the apartments or Holiday Houses and do some metal detecting myself.

But that is beside the point. Maybe the next time they can find a way to send a dog to Mars. There are plenty of Puppies for Sale and dogs love to dig in the most unusual and unexpected places. Mars would be no exception to the rule.

I don't think they chewed this over well enough or maybe they bit off more then they could chew. They may be gnashing their teeth right now for being so forgetful, but all that would result in is a visit to a dentist tauranga nz. It wouldn't do any good at present anyway and that may be for the best. Curiosity killed the cat.

Hence the puppy!
