In a press conference held by NASA yesterday it was revealed that Mars is eating our space probes. "First it was a couple landers, now it's a Beagle" Nasa spokeswoman Jacquelyn Barker said, Monday.

"We are sending probe after probe in an attempt to pro... search for life on the planet. You thought I was going to say probe again." explained Barker. Researchers have been studying the red planet's orbit and have discovered anomalies which have led them to believe that Mars is very hungry and enjoys lousy earth landers produced by budget cuts and misplaced space goals and agendas. When asked for comment Mars gave us the finger and continued orbiting eliptically.

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