image for Curiosity Kills The Cat
Computer Aided Telescope

Mars Rover "Curiosity" has killed the C.A.T or Computer Aided Telescope which detached itself after the vehicle hit a rock. The Cat began to purr and Meow loudly, then disappeared for a day. On its return it was captured on camera with a dead martian mammal in its forward aperture. The cat let the animal go free then caught it again and played around with it until it died.

Mission Control Experts were able to activate the external voice communication system to coax the C.A.T back into the airlock by shouting, "Kitty Kitty Kitty", the emergency return to module code, but Curiosity simply killed it. The Mission Commander told our reporter, "There was a 'Black Box' on board the C.A.T which, when programmed to ask the C.A.T. where it had been, simply played back the recorded message "I've been up to London to look at the Queen".

A NASA spokesperson said this morning, "Unfortunately Curiosity killed the C.A.T as it is hard wired to do so. We do have a backup external mobile visual system code named K9, but its a "Son of a bitch".
