Tell me what's wrong with this picture.

It's time to have a little fun at Pelablinka.

Tell me what's wrong at the NASA JPL website dedicated to the rovers. It's a question of scale.

Hint - It's in the drawings of the rovers, illustrating what time of day it is for each. <i>Edited by: Damelon  at: 1/30/04 7:42 am

They all have the same shadow, even at night. ________________

That was easy.

In the night picture the Martian moons wouldn't give enough light to cast a shadow. The moons themselves are tiny, only about 10 miles across and would appear to be as bright as the International Space Station. <i></i>
