    0’12’55” – Autographs. I have a, gold, blast-off-blend coffee bag autographed by both Ben and Cariann which….Cariann licked. True story.

    A Bruised Chevy????? As an Aussie, even I think this is an insult to the programs that made me look up and wonder. The intro to this show, was one of those kind of moments, that I show my “tween” daughters to inspire them about space. Bring on 12 mins of hell for MSL. Cause my friends, who are not at all space nuts, love the idea, that we are landing a “Mini” on Mars!
