And one for Rich. I don't suppose you know Aus is about to launch a Mars rover to search for alien life.

This is the prototype that has been tested in the outback It will roam the Martian surface searching for flatulence from subterranean life. The gasses will be stored in the container at the back. When a sufficient quantity has been collected It will be used to propel the rover back to Earth.
