Scientists Drew A Penis On Mars

mars penis

I know it has been a hard few weeks for everyone. I mean, it’s especially been a hard few weeks for people in Boston, because they have faced real evil, and, also not been able to sneak out of their one night stands as easily as they would like to. So, sometimes, in addition to “looking for the helpers” we also need to look for moments of pure joy in the world.

Like this one. Like scientists drawing a penis on Mars.

According to commenters on reddit the picture is from the actual NASA page.

Look, I have a few questions. For NASA. I have questions for NASA scientists.

1) Are you all 14? Is this something people got to do if they went to astronaut camp? Usually I tell people my parents wouldn’t let me go to astronaut camp, but really, I was just very frightened by the idea of being upside down for a long period, and did not want to go. Suffice to say, if I’d known you got to draw stuff on planets, I would have been braver.

2) Was this deliberate? I guess if it was deliberate 20 points (the average human being can only earn 100 points in their lifetime, after which they are automatically promoted to “michevious immortal sprite”). If you just accidentally drew a penis on a planet and then decided to leave it, 50 points.

2) Is there even wind on Mars? Or elements? Maybe that penis is just going to be there forever and ever? I wish someone had signed their name next to this so we knew who to congratulate.

    There is wind on Mars, and it’s intense. There was an great article in last week’s New Yorker about this Mars mission and the sexy, badass gentlemen (and, like, one woman) pioneering it. And there were definitley comparisons drawn between them and pubescent boys, so, yeah.
