  • Someone was getting text messages during the whole descent, and it must have been someone high up because no one asked them to mute their phone.
  • Bolden and Holdren had to piss all over their territory saying first off, right out of the gate, that this was prep for human landings on Mars. ¬†Why can’t we just do good science without turning it into a manned spaceflight boondoggle?

Also, random internet commenters: It’s California, dudes. Not JSC in Houston. Hairstyles and attitudes. If they weren’t on TV, it would be shorts and flip-flops.
