Cool Car heads to MARS!!

NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory just launched Curiosity. A mobile rover robot for investigating Mars’ past or present ability to sustain microbial life. Like, what? Microbial Life? Is that like… really tiny alien Transformers of something?

At least, that’s what they say. I think they’re setting up a custom detail build shop because I got an email from someone named “Deep Pockets” to design some flames on the side of the Rover. No, really. I’m supposed to shoot everything matte black, add the MARS red flames and lower the whole thing by two inches. Oh, and add a NASA sticker of course.

Yea, those funky NASA doods. Always workin’ on the top secret projects. I can hear the muffled “Low Rider” from WAR playing all the way from there. Even alien MARS doods have to be cool, right? Good job, NASA…
