Curiosity rover dresses

  1. I object to this dress because the treads seemingly do not include the Morse Code pattern that JPL built into them! The treads have a repeating pattern (useful to tracking distance in photographs looking back) that say J P L in dots and dashes.

    This is a spare wheel at JPL.

  2. I am unworthy to comment on the glory of this creative achievement, and yet – I will.

    Carl Sagan would dig it.

    Is that a steampunk horseshoe crab on her head?

      I was assuming it was a nod to the radio antenna.

      First thing I thought of was, “Hey, are people cosplaying as the robots from the last episode of Doctor Who already?”

      Granted, it’s not quite in the right position, but it’s close enough.

    So, in the upcoming International Space Apps Challenge, one of the challenges is called Curiosity At Home. I think this dress is WAY better than the Lego model they have suggested as a possible way to meet the challenge. Way better.

    I’m jumping in here to tout the gloriousness that is me. One of my high school classmates was the lead flight coordinator on the Rover team. We are Facebook friends and his feed was way cool when the Rover was kickin’ it into high gear. 

    Every Mars morning, they play a song in the control room to “wake up” the Rover for its work. He took requests. I suggested Hammertime AND IT GOT PLAYED on the morning Curiosity started doing some hammering. 

    Awesome! I am awesome! Okay, true, he is the actual rocket scientist not me, but DUDE, my song!

    It’s like men are from Mars, and women… dress like Mars!
