NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena recently had a huge success with the landing of the "Curiosity" rover on Mars.
All I could think of was Howard Wolowitz from TV's "The Big Bang Theory." There was a famous episode a few years ago, where Howard let a date drive the Mars rover in an effort to impress her. She would up getting the rover stuck in a Martian ditch. Howard called Leonard, Sheldon, and Raj to help get him out of the pickle. They were unable to free the rover, but they were able to erase any traces of Howard and his date being at the controls.
I'm sure "Curiosity" will have a much better fate with someone other than Howard Wolowitz behind the wheel.
