People only pay attention to NASA when something fucks up. Would we have even ever heard of the Genesis Capsule if it didn't crash?
But lemme know the next time you see a headline about a car crash not happening.
I am now giggling uncontrollably
On a positive note the collected data was recovered. And it has said that this re-entry system may be used again in the future.
Sure, they got the data - but was there any sign of those two droids?
No, but they weren't the droids you were looking for anyway.
Oh, bollocks. I'll move along then, shall I?
I can't find the exact statement now, but they said that information about the crash would be incorporated into the design of future probes. It was in response to a reporter asking if since the data survived the impact, why would they bother with a parachute system.
So it was probably more spin than science, then.
That's why it crashed, actually.
This reminds me of the Australian cricket team of the 80s. Dropsies!
I only have three things to say:
KLAATU VERADA NICTU!
Then you would be a squashed human. Next time try ”Klaatu barada nikto”. Gort is picky about the pronunciation.
Look. Maybe she didn't say every single little tiny syllable, no. But basically she said them, yeah.
