HOUSTON - The people at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are jumping for joy at the recent discovery made by the Martian land rover Curiosity.
Trent Timmelfarb, the official spokesperson for NASA, has informed the news media that the land rover has reported finding a huge gold field.
Computer figures show that the gold is of prime caliber and initial estimates are that the particular gold field that Curiosity has discovered covers an area that is a little bit bigger than the state of Georgia.
Timmelfarb stated that the gold is amazingly bright in color and NASA experts estimate that it could be worth as much as $4 trillion.
He pointed out that NASA has named the golf field Eureka 17. He explained that the name Eureka was chosen because the makers of Eureka Vacuum Cleaners paid NASA a hefty amount for the naming rights.
Timmelfarb noted that the number 17 was chosen because it's astronaut Buzz Aldrin's favorite number.
SIDENOTE: NASA is presently planning on gathering the gold and shipping it to Earth where it will immediately be stored at Fort Knox.
