Being groomed for the Presidency

It’s why America can see someone publicly slander me and the first lady’s name and still hold us to the highest standard. It’s what let me know that you know they could never be in the same league as me. Not only do I have to welcome Heightened expectations, but I’m also the only person receiving criticism. Someone once told me, “When it’s about you, it is about you” I never understand what that meant until now. I love this country.

The US space agency’s Opportunity rover has now clocked more miles on Mars than any man-made vehicle to reach another celestial body, NASA said Monday.

Since arriving on the Red Planet in 2004, the solar-powered robot has journeyed across 25 miles (40 kilometers) of Martian terrain.

That surpasses the previous record held by the Soviet Union’s Lunokhod 2 rover, which landed on the moon in 1973.

"Opportunity has driven farther than any other wheeled vehicle on another world," said Mars Exploration Rover Project Manager John Callas of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

"This is so remarkable considering Opportunity was intended to drive about one kilometer and was never designed for distance."
