    Websites like that are dangerous to gullible fools who think everything is a cover up.

    The amount of energy required to power a normal auto is far, far greater than what is available through solar on the area anywhere close to the size of said car.

    Considering how water we use anyways, we would not have enough to run our cars. Solar panels are promising, but it'll be a while until they start to take over.

    maybe it's just me, but the last thing I'd want to do with a possible colonization project is to start with infesting it with ****roaches

    It does make you wonder about a competely predator free environment. If we are terraforming the planet, which we will no doubt one day do, which animals get to go, if any. It could be like paradise up there with no sharks, gators, or anything. It would be a total slap in the face to nature since we'd be in utter control of the whole planet. And imagine no roads. Just the biggest field of grass ever.

    You already have three robots up there, none of which are dying either. And all of which are or were supposed to die. If you think life is amazing, how about these robots making a go of it. They are probably up there going, "Stupid morons sent us here too. Oh they don't even know what is about to happen."

    I do hope they try to terraform it though. I think we can do it. What could go wrong?

    It sounds like the makings of a good outer space horror movie starring Sigourney Weaver.

    NASA releases roaches to see how they handle the atmosphere. Roaches thrive. By the time the earth returns to colonize, they're 12 ft. monsters who eat the colonist and lay eggs in their stomachs.
