The main control panel for the Earth, Mars, Sun, Moon and the rest of the Solar System has been found by the Curiosity Mars Vehicle.

NASA has now admitted that this was the reason for the multi billion dollar mission. Steven Honking, the distinguished scientist and mathematician claims to have known all the time that it was there. Among the startling finds on the control panel are a notice which says "Do not press this button under any circumstances" This was immediately pressed, causing a flag to appear saying "April Fool" followed by a small atomic bomb detonation on the horizon.

Additionally an equator nudge button was identified with a graduated scale by the side of it. It appears that the equator can be nudged up or down, making Alaskan temperatures rocket to 45 degrees in the shade and Central Africa chill to minus 20 degrees. This button is to be pressed tomorrow.

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