You know, because we can.

Here's a pic of a car on Mars driving, zapping, and drilling the surface, taken by an orbiter traveling overhead, that is then sent via radio waves to giant dishes on Earth that pick out the signal from the noise of the universe and put it on the web.

Look at that beautiful rover and those delicate tracks.

Mouse over text;
   "To be fair, my job at NASA was working on robots and didn't actually involve any orbital mechanics. The small positive slope over that period is because it turns out that if you hang around at NASA, you get in a lot of conversations about space."

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.

*Curator's Note*
To parents of young children ;
Your discretion is advised as episodes of strong language, Agnosticism, Free Thinking and Science may occur here with no further warning. You may want to use these an a teaching opportunity to discuss social conventions and human reproduction with your off-spring.
