The System 602: Sky Crane Game
I, like everyone else on The Internet, was really into the whole “LANDING A ROVER ON FREAKING MARS” thing. It was a pretty big deal, but the craziest part of all has got to be not the guy with the mohawk and stars in his hair (Activity Lead Bobak Ferdowsi), but the freaking “sky crane”. Instead of having the rover just fire rockets, they wanted to avoid the dust kicked up from that so they just had it lower down from above via a sky crane. This was clearly the only joke that could be made from there.
