Many have attributed the untimely breakdown of the Jade Rabbit rover to extraterrestrial intervention.

Quote

Launched at part of China's Chang'e 3 mission back in December 2013, the Jade Rabbit (Yutu) rover's initial success gave way to disappointment when it unceremoniously broke down after two weeks having only traversed around 60ft of the lunar surface.

  • The age of stupid is upon us. Scientific conclusions are drawn from missing data, resuming to suppositions and guessing.

This is indeed very interesting. Someone or something doesn't want us on the Moon!

What would indicate that?   The science team said the rover succumbed to environmental conditions and there doesn't seem to be anything else going on here.  The stories they are telling each other, like a giant craft near the moon when the rover died, are ludicrous given the number of telescopes trained on the moon at any one time.

Believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake.  The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence and if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is.  - Carl Sagan

It's the Space Nazis, they have bases on the moon.

So a complex remotely controlled experiment breaks down 280000 odd miles away from the earth, on perhaps the one of the most inhospital environments we can think of ... Must be Aliens.

I'm guessing Beagle2's failure is now explained as well then.

Of course.  Can't be faulty workmanship or poor specifications.

How about attributing the breakdown to cheap parts made in CHINA.

Get real.  Chinese built crap breaks down all the time.  What did they think would happen.  They should have built their manufacturing HQ in the USA and hired Americans to build it for them if they wanted it to work. :yes:

But it DID work...for a while, so 10 out of 10 for effort!  The US lost many probes too,

failure is in a way a good thing, it makes people look deeply at how and what went wrong, thus leading to new and better craft

Yeah, that's it.

Hoagland is trying to keep his 15 minutes of fame going.  Next he'll say someone's living on the Sun, but their invisible just like the Mars city and the ruins on the Moon.

Good to see Hoagland has got more sensible in his theories as he gets older :w00t:
