Some of those long narrow rocks are actually fossilized dinosaur bones

I think I'm just going to start referring to Mars as Tatooine.

They weren't sure if a drone could fly in the thin atmosphere (and extreme cold) of Mars.

Secret to finding life on Mars: just fly a drone around for a few hours. If there are any martians, at some point one of them is going to get fed up and throw something at it.

Moxie generated 5 grams of oxygen gas; about 10 minutes worth of breathable oxygen. The plan is to scale up Moxie into a 1 ton version capable of generating 25 metric tons of oxygen

3rd flight. It rose up to 16 feet (5 meters) just like before but this time traversed 164 feet (50 meters) at 6.6 feet per second (2 meters per second). That, so far, has been the farthest and the fastest that it has ever flown.

Hope they have plans for it to do a wide radius orbit around the lander so it looks like a video loop
