NASA scientists in front of a packed press gallery have released a spectacular panoramic view of the Mars surface showing off the expansive desert like landscape of the red planet as never seen before. The panorama, composed of many months worth of images stitched together, is hoped to provide further insight into whether this barren surface once held life or is still capable of hosting some form of life. The NASA Mars rover team were keen to highlight the features in the large image with particular attention being paid to the tracks left by the rover itself at which point they all gave a high five to the Mars rover remote navigator who seemed to smirk and cough awkwardly.

Reporter: You seem a little red faced? Are you sure you are fine for this interview?

The rover team explained how the rover tracks marked out the plans for erecting a large communications towers with two neighboring water tanks. The lead team member, Jim Hanson, gave the following description for the tower.

“It would need to be a quite long and stiff tower so as to be effective in transmitting data in these harsh and windy conditions. Tower erection will be a complex process given the undulating surface but we are confident we can get it up.”

At this point one of the rover team members ran out of the room with tears visibly streaming from his eyes.

NASA officials proposed location to erect a Mars communication tower with two adjacent water storage units.

At this point the remaining NASA Mars rover team asked to be excused and left the room with their faces pressed into their hands and their shoulders shuddering uncontrollably.

Reporter: Ape, has this post finished yet? Haha! They drew a willy on the … What? Well stop this post dammit so we can all have a laugh!

    Let’s all hope – and by “all” I mean not only apple-pie-on-the-face Americans but Canadians and anyone else that ends up paying NASA’s bill throught trickle-down inflation – that after investing astronomical amounts of cash to erect the tower and tanks, successive presidential administrations will pledge to continue to support the Mars Colony and not fall prey to premature evacuation.
