Apparently scientists have dubbed the Martian sands “Tartarus,” and according to those links, it won’t be able to recharge its solar panels. Made me think of this:
Ne absorbeat eas tartarus, necadant in obscurum!
Is this one of the maps from the Sunday comics where Billy of Family Circus traces the activities of his day?

I have to say this post stunned me. Somehow I found it quite surprising that a catholic priest can be interested in space travel and exploration. Wow! That’s something refreshing, indeed. And you still have time to do all that even including all the postings appearing here.
surprising that a catholic priest can be interested in space travel and exploration?
Not if you think of the key roles so many Catholic clerics — including Copernicus and a host of Jesuits — have played in the history of astronomy, the fact that the Vatican Observatory is one of the world’s oldest, etc. (As an incidental aside, it might be interesting to know how many comets are named after the priests who discovered them.)
More personally, the holiest parish priest I’ve ever known well followed space exploration so closely, right up to his death at age 83, that he had the biggest collection of taped TV science and astronomy programs I’ve ever seen. More surprising is anyone interested in God who’s not fascinated by His Creation.
The Big Bang theory came from a Belgian priest, Georges Lemaitre.
Well, not *that* surprised, I was just used to seeing prayer explanations and stories related to Church’s life here. I didn’t suspected that with so much focus and so much energy invested in that Father Z. still has time to pursue such unusual interests. Unusual, since even in general population most people are not following our ventures into space.
I think we might have the traditional mass on Mars, before we get it in some parishes in the U.S. We here in San Diego, have the beginings of some movement, Deo gratias.
