🥳 Huge congrats to Sturgeon's Law for winning our Mars Pendant! 🥳

(1) Mars Pendant with Mars Meteorite Granules
(1) Mars JPL Mission Patch

This pendant includes granules that were once on Mars itself, having made its way to Earth via a meteor that was found in Morroco back in 2011. To win this amazing prize, including a JPL Mission patch, all you have to do is follow these instructions:
  1. Log in or register at the Space.com forums.
  2. Reply to this post and let us know what your favourite Mars news story was (from any time).

The fact that Mars is currently volcanically active. We could potentially see a current Mars eruption, and hopefully we do soon!

My favourite news story was that 30 years ago a book was published with "Elon" getting humans to Mars. It turns out once translated that it was not a first name like Elon Musk, but a company called Elon. Still quite interesting!

My favorite Mars story, though it's only implied from Mars, is ...... "The Thing", a 1951 movie featuring the late James Arness as the "Thing", who is an extraterrestrial arriving in a saucer shaped spaceship. Still an entertaining SciFi to watch. If upon winning the Mars pendant, after viewing the "Thing", one may resolve to forego keeping the pendant and give it to one's mother-in -law or former significant other. So view the "Thing" movie to get the full import. P.S.: James Arness went on to star in an excellent, realistic U.S. western TV series entitled "Gun Smoke". Also, excellent entertainment viewing.

Right now my favorite Mars story is the one I read last week about knocking over the little "jelly donut" rock. More specifically, a quote I read out of the article.
"I don't know what any of this means. We're comepletely confused, we're having a wonderful time." - Steve Squyres, lead scientist for Mars rover Opportunity.

Am still thrilled to learn that Orson Welles was kidding back in 1938. ;)
Crystal Night, Sept 11th 1938. The first 911. New York City was in a panic that aliens from outter space were invading. The FCC was set up to control
fictitious news stories.

My all time favourite news storey was Orson Wells " War of the Worlds" radio broadcast ! My favourite Space.com news storey was the first time when humans became the first remote pilots of a "UFO" on Mars, ie the Ingenuity Helicopter Drone !
