Mars Rocks!

  • Markus Hotakainen

The most beautiful planet in the world.

Kim Stanley Robinson: A Martian Romance (1999)

A small silvery rover makes it way cautiously on the red sand of Mars. A gentle breeze plays with the dust raised by the tiny wheels. The tracks left by the rover go way back towards the salmon pink horizon. A wheeled robot the size of a microwave oven gazes confidently ahead and relays yet another image to the ground control.

Is this a scene in a science documentary on Mars exploration? Could be, but the correct answer is no. It is a commercial advertising Hewlett-Packard’s ink jet printers.
