From dictionary.com

grok

/grok/, var. /grohk/ vt. [from the novel "Stranger in a
Strange Land", by Robert A. Heinlein, where it is a Martian word
meaning literally `to drink' and metaphorically `to be one with']
The emphatic form is `grok in fullness'. 1. To understand, usually
in a global sense. Connotes intimate and exhaustive knowledge.
Contrast zen, which is similar supernal understanding experienced
as a single brief flash. See also glark. 2. Used of programs,
may connote merely sufficient understanding. "Almost all C
compilers grok the `void' type these days."

VMS = Valentine Michael Smith, the main character in Heinlein's "Stranger In A Strange Land.

So, grok is a Martian word in the book? Could the next question be related? As in grok is to humans...?

I doubt the last question is related to the current one or else the "VMS" would have been there from the start.
