NASA To Tackle Important Space-Cookie Question

Illustration for article titled NASA To Tackle Important Space-Cookie Question

Dana Zemack has been making stick figure comics since she was 12. This week, she made one just for us.


Tomorrow at 10:02 am EST, NASA will be launching its new Mars rover, Curiosity, into space. Oddly, the New York Times reports that despite the fact that scientists have been able to detect methane in Mars's atmosphere, and the fact that cows produce methane, there are actually no cows on Mars. I hope this is inaccurate, and here's why: If there are cows, then there's milk, and if there's milk, then there are obviously cookies, and I've had a longtime suspicion that space cookies are tastier than Earth cookies. I must say that I am pleased that NASA is finally taking this issue seriously.

Unfortunately, we won't be able to confirm whether or not space cookies are tasty until August, which is when Curiosity is set to land. In the meantime, here's how you can watch it launch.
