Just a lump of rock

A splashdown in the Pacific Ocean by a manned Mars space capsule has occurred three years before it was due to be launched, NASA announced this morning.

A spokesperson said "Boy I think we were going to use too much nitro on that baby! This is all good though, it means that provided we actually launch the thing we won't be stuck in a paradox. The crew have to be very careful though to cope with two of themselves."

On a positive footing they will be able to eat out while they babysit for themselves. Unfortunately Mars is still a cold barren rock even more boring than Canada. "We may as well start launching probes to Toronto" a NASA administrator told our reporter.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
