The Brave Little Mars Phoenix

31 Oct

Mr. Broke Hoedown (aka Collateral Damage) has a great post this week about the demise of the Mars Phoenix rover, which he likens to both The Brave Little Toaster and WALL-E.

None of my technical knowledge did anything to prevent me getting a bit teary when I read a few of those final tweets from outer space. I’m still hoping we hear from Phoenix a few more times, and at the same time I don’t know if my heart can stand a longer good-bye.

And hey, on a cheerier note, he’s also got an interesting post about a Japanese man who’s pushing for the right to marry a cartoon character. Or maybe that’s more depressing, I’m not sure.
