    Computer glitch hits Mars rover

    Nasa’s Curiosity Mars rover has been put into “safe mode” after a computer glitch caused by corrupted files.

    The robot, which is analysing rock samples on the red planet, is now running from a back-up computer.

    Nasa scientists are looking into possible causes for the files on the robot’s flash memory being damaged.

    The fault means the rover’s work has been put on temporary hold while the back-up computer is reconfigured so it can take full control.

    This must be settled by a proper duel, at 20 paces, between the head hardware and software gurus.
    “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
    Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

    That episode where Wolowitz got the rover stuck on Mars, while he was trying to impress a girl, was the first thing I thought of when I heard this story. Beat me to it.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    The episode where Leonard signed the time machine claus in the dreaded
    "room mate agreement " was hilarious.

    Before signing Sheldon made him agree that if either one of them invented time travel their first stop would be that room in 5 seconds.

    Leonard signs and Sheldon pauses 5 seconds and then starts looking in different directions around the room for a time traveler.

    Sheldon said something, I just cant remember
