Imperialism


Curiosity, the Mars rover, came to rest on the floor of a deep depression on Mars' equator known as Gale Crater. 

Typical imperialist tactics - giving a Mars location an Earth name. I'll bet you anything that the locals don't call it that.

  2. Whatever it's called, it will be twinned with Slough.

  3. "local" is a relative term, on the scale of the solar system it may turn out that we're the "locals"... let's hope not though ;)
