That's why we have white knuckles until we're on the surface. Because
everyone knows you can't have a decent radio without a connection to
ground. We DO of course, write JPL in Morse Code as Curiosity drives
I don't know what they'll do in the UK, because on Mars, getting an
electrical connection to earth would take a long wire.
