Ok, which one of you wise guys put the monolith on Mars?
Fess up, I don't want to have to ask again!!
I'm thinking Sonhouse. After all, with all his posts he must have had a great deal of down time traveling to and from Mars.
Yeah, I made a secret invention, the field accelerator, no rockets needed, I get about 200 G out of it, it works so well I don't feel any acceleration except what I let bleed out, with my other secret invention, the matter-antimatter flipper and recombiner, I get so much energy I can't use it all, I get to mars and back in about 12 hours. Of course it didn't hurt that I also invented the hyperconductor, it is superconducting up to about 3000 degrees C.
Makes a great shield for re-entering the atmosphere. Trundling the dam monolith on to the surface was a bit tricky however, three of my support ropes broke on the way down and I had to land with just two ropes holding the thing together. What a pain in the butt that was.
