If NASA were to plan a demise of the rovers, which option would you choose?

If the two rovers could only find the Pathfinder mission robot then we could have ourselves a convoy!

I voted for Thelma and Louise. Great idea for a Poll! There are probably many witty sugestions to your question.

If the two rovers got together would there be any chance of hearing the whrrr-whrrr of tiny wheels? Or is that incest? :o

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to get into the spirit of things.

If the thunderdome idea was voted for how could they attack each other? I guess they could analyse each other to death. Great close up pictures of the action!

I voted Thunderdome. I just got this image in my mind of two groups of JPL Scientists at mission controls yelling at each other and waiting six minutes for what happened. Complete with breathless commentary by a few news anchors who will not admit on their lives if the six minute delay gets boring.
It'd be the ultimate nerd showoff. Cue the Clint Eastwood music.

The ultimate game of cosmic chicken, both rovers approach each other at the breath taking speed of 1 inch per second. Since the rovers are thousands of miles apart, how long would we have to wait for the crash? :-k

Make 'em take that hill, or better yet, drive it up Mount Olympus (which should take a couple years), or drive it off Valles Marineres! Better to o out with a bang than a whimper. :lol:

I voted Thunderdome, but I was thinking more like Battlebots or Robot Wars.
