    Jeff Foust comments on the many Western media sources prematurely
    reporting (or even apparently celebrating) the demise of China's lunar
    rover, Yutu (aka 'Jade Rabbit' ), a 'cute' lagomorphized robot.

    I see a parallel between this current situation with Mars, and the situation with the Olympics. Both are stages for politicized international competitions that are much, much more salubrious to human welfare than the surrogate wars we have seen since WWII. Compared to the alternatives, it's acceptable.
