Damn, that sucks. How long does its data take to reach NASA? If it does hit, it would be interesting to see the last few readings the rover takes before it's obliterated


If I remember correctly it takes about 18 minutes for transmission to or from the earth & mars to reach their destination. If I had to speculate on what the last moments of rover would be like, I'd say there will be a blinding light followed by nothing.

Or, of course, I could just use this thread that's already there.

Shouldn't have been going around finding door handles and stuff up there.

so let's say we find out that we're going to be hit and completely wiped out

why would you want to spend years knowing this?


Yes, I would.

I'd rather not spend my last days at my job going about my daily routine. I'd rather spend them with my family out on the lake doing fun things.
