Well… I don’t know about that. In every cheesy (aren’t they all cheesy?) sci-fi flick I have seen, aliens have hovered gently down to the ground (or crashed) with their ships and then came out of their space ships, and not bounced a few miles over earth, and then opened up into itself being an alien…
Would you say the rovers crash landed on Mars? I think not, cause they still work fine. Or maybe that is how they were designed, to mimic martian UFOs tendency of crash landing and surviving. :ahh: If that were real that is… :yikes:
Maybe it’s my love of the cheesy sci-fi movies, but I would call the rovers more UFOs than aliens. Although, now they are more of a URO type dealio = Unidentified Roving/Roaming Objects. (from a martian’s perspective of course.)
Although, I never did see an alien movie where the aliens have some cool little vehicles that they cruise along earth with, unless they were “manned - I use that term lightly” vehicles and they flew, like Independence day and all them mini UFOs that came out of the mother ship…
I hope the engineers at NASA at least put in a Buddy Lee doll in the drivers seat of the Rovers so that the Martians could at least see what our race sort of kinda looks like. I would rather them do some probes on a Buddy Lee doll, than use their crash landing specialty space ships to come get me in the middle of the night… :eek:
Well, maybe Buddy Lee is a bad example as to what humans look like… But so far, the Rovers have idealized Buddy Lee’s motto (or should I say more accurately, The Lee Jeans Company’s motto); “bet you cant bust em” by lasting as long as they have.
Wow… and that was a totally random rant if I ever saw one. What do you expect from a 3am post?

edit: Wow… totally spooky Buddy Lee Mars Rover connection.
Same company who made Buddy Lee dolls for Lee Jeans commercials, made a rover for another commercial.
