And first months clocks of control teams were even "synchronized" to time of rovers... could have been much worse, length of Mars' day is near earth's day.

Man relax, hes talking about the people working on this project, its tongue in cheek. Some of those guys have been working on this every day for the last year, often with long shifts. I'd say there are some bloody tired people wandering around at JPL.

My impression was that it wasan offhand comment meaning they were so exhausted from all the work on the rover they might be dead before may. aka a jk.
Hey wow, clouds on mars, im really really beginning to wonder how much like earth mars really is, and weather nasa/gov really are hiding something, realeasing a little hint here a little hint there so whatever the truth its not such a big shock later? not leaping to the fantastic mind you, i dont think theres any sizable life on mars, but it could be far less harsh and barren in places than we think. very intresting link.

Geez this thread has really gotten out of hand. Can't you see the evidence is pretty much pointing to him talking about humans being on Mars for such a long time? May would be almost a year and a half of time for the rovers being active on Mars. That'll be amazing for them to have gone that long. As others, and myself, have stated, he was talking about how it would be pretty damned hard for humans to survive that long on the planet.

But I still do not get why the reporter asked about May. I dont see any reason for them to ask about a paticular month.
