I would like to thank astronomer Alex Parker for the bit of inspired silliness that is "Robot Shaming."

Bad Curiosity! No treats!

He gets like this around rocks sometimes.

Here is my favorite one so far:

Actually, this one makes me feel a little sad.

If you're not clear on what's going on here: Robot Shaming is a Tumblr (which is sort of a curated, public mini-blog) that is inspired by a very popular one called Dog Shaming. If you have robots that need to be shamed, submit your photos!

I love the Voyager one too, and yes it's sad. Sad to be going off to be lost in the great beyond, sad that we don't know what "leaving the solar system" means, and sad that people keep making fun of us because we don't know what "leaving the solar system" means.

I want to know what VGR collects outside our system. My curiosity is very high. We are so close ... if only, if only ... As for Sojourner; "No please, not the feather duster!" Speaking of Mars, off to planetfour to mark more images.
