Rational Thinking 101 is not a news site, so I’m not going to tell you that NASA’s helicopter on Mars just completed the first flight on another planet. And yes, it’s a big deal.

Here we don’t just report newsworthy events. Here we answer questions and give rational opinions, and in my rational opinion you can learn about NASA’s helicopter from sources other than here. Nope, not gonna hear nuthin’ about that incredible first flight of a helicopter on another planet.

Nor am I going to tell you that I’m glad NASA is sending rovers and unmanned drone helicopters to Mars rather than people. Sending people to Mars is dangerous and in my humble opinion unnecessary. It’s like asking “When will SpaceX colonize Mars?
