Scientists are reported to have discovered huge geysers spewing dust and sand hundreds of feet into the sky on the planet Mars (no, not a certain chocolate bar :pi: That really WOULD get me worried).

^ lol! :D

I do feel sorry for the team that sent the Beagle probe though. All those years of hard work and the darned thing crashes into smithereens. I imagine words like 'dang', 'heck' and 'drat' were doing good business in Mission Control that day :rolleyes: :(

PS: we scientists do have a sense of humour. Honest.
