It's just a bit fustrating to me...going all that way and your still getting hit with bandwidth bottlenecks.

The further you go, the worse the bottlenecks become! In a good hour, there's 5Mbit/sec of data transfer. In a bad hour, it might only be 125bits/sec. That's pretty good considering how far the signal has to go!

What we want is a good ol fashioned fossil...No way to put anything in perspective, mars is so vast, when will we know we have her "average" What's Average on Mars?
