    only short test flight, but this is a massive step forward rather than the slow moving rovers.

    controlling a drone from millions of miles away and you also have to understand a flight in virtually no atmosphere is pretty hard to do. not a bad achievement for the advance in space exploration.

    I agree Glynn and it would be fantastic to think that space exploration will be of benefit to all humans but you look at the mess we’ve made on Earth and you look at the way genuinely brilliant scientific discoveries have been derailed for military purposes and private profit and I just think that perhaps we should tidy up our own backyard before we mess up a new house.
