Was that some kind of package deal or was it 2 seperate trips.

I read it had to go from 13000 mph to 2 in 7 minutes so it can land on the surface safely. Its lucky it wasn't rear ended by a crazy space woman driver.

You'd think that with the way things timed out, the new Total Recall film would push the Mars angle a little more in the trailers (for their own sake). That being said, I'm still definitely seeing it. The original was an amazingly good film.

Wow. I thought Mars was what really made the film. I'll go in with an open mind though, but kind of disappoint already

incredible. i just wish the general public would get behind stuff like this. THIS is what will spark our nations economy and more importantly our young generations minds. we need inspiration for science and progress - not the chasing of fast cash and ripping people off for money.

I often think of the religious implicatons that will follow if we discover life on Mars. I also wonder who made the first grilled cheese sammy.

I don't think there is life on Mars, for life to survive you need water, oxygen and a McDonalds close by.
