At Least Downtown They'll Leave it on Blocks

Slashdot linked up news that the once-found Mars Polar Lander now, well, hasn't been:

After being lost and potentially found, NASA’s Mars Polar Lander appears to be lost once more.
Camera specialists at Malin Space Science Systems (MSSS) near San Diego, California initially thought they might have spotted the probe’s parachute, as well as disturbed terrain from the craft’s landing engines.

But comparative imagery of the same location taken in January 2000 and September 2005 provide “excellent evidence” that possible spacecraft components are “not real features on the surface of Mars,” a new posting on the MSSS web site explains.

<liberal tinfoil hat> Well duh, it's in Karl Rove's garage. Do you really think all this is about some stupid press leak?

<conservative tinfoil hat> Well duh, it's in Hillary Clinton's trailer. Haven't you noticed she's been pretty quiet lately?

<Ron's tinfoil hat> Boobies.
