Yesterday morning, if you were up around 1:15 AM or so and near a computer, you probably got to witness one of the greatest events of our time. This, of course, was Curiosity the Mars rover landing successfully on the surface of the planet. Before you know it, young Martians will be declaring their neighborhoods “over” and settling in deep crevasses elsewhere.
I was not awake for this. I missed out on history being made.
Anyways, if you were awake, you probably got to see these guys (above) hitting a career milestone that would get them carte blanche into any aerospace job they wanted from here to Kazakstan. I. however, thought of the much underloved candy bar that is equally as deep and dark as the night sky where that planet resides. I thought of the Mars candy bar. I also thought of the now defunct Mars Bar on the Bowery, but the candy bar seemed more appealing this morning.
