Well needless to say, NASA is at it again. They announced that the Mars rover is forgetting its daily data and cannot share it with the public because of that. Hmmm...very convenient NASA, since the rover just entered into an area with a lot of ancient alien archeological site. The Curiosity rover cost over 2.5 billion dollars to make and it has a glitch like this? Hello, I could put a team together in a week that could build a better rover for 10% the cost. A lot of that money went into black ops missions the rover will perform that the public will not be allowed to know. Still have doubts? Have you see the rover wheels? Each of the wheels has 4-8 holes in them the size of quarters. These are metal wheels! Now the rover has only driven 40km. The temperature on Mars is 20 Celsius (70F) during noon, and -150C (-225F) at night, so we know the wheels are not melting.
I've seen NASA do this several times in the past. They say something interesting is about to happened, like a satellite is about to travel through a gutser plume from a planet and it will test the liquid for chemical makeup. They when it did, NASA said, "Oh, sorry, we had a glitch just as it entered the plume and it didn't run the test as planned." When they actually did get the results which would send scientists around the globe into a frenzy.
The truth is NASA is performing a lot of covert missions with this rover and they are not allowing the public to know about it. That is more like the NSA than NASA. SCW
