    It narrows the search, which is good after the failure of Beagle 2.

    Sorry to hear about Beagle 2. Maybe the Rover will find it.

    It ain't over till it's over. Mars Express will start trying to make contact with Beagle 2 starting Jan 6th. I have my fingers crossed.

    It might have been better if it had named 'nautilus' or 'parrot' or 'treasure', because the Rove can always get them.

    Or we can launch another explorer named "bone"...

    Then the Beagle will find the bone?

    They've found iron oxide on Mars, which indicates the presence of water. Iron oxide--that's rust.

    Won't be long before they find an old Skoda or Lada then. (British joke) ;)

    They were good jokes. It's about time someone made a truly awful car so they could be dusted down and retold.
