At this stage, we are all used to RTE's obsession with negative news. If they can't find enough negativity locally, they will go to the far side of the world to find some. Last night, they travelled a record 500,000 km to bring us what they hoped would be a disaster. The European space agency tried to land a probe on Mars but it landed too fast and crashed. RTE expected to be told that the mission was a waste of millions of euro but it turns out that it was mostly successful and the final landing was a practice for a future attempt to land a rover. I guess they'll have to find where Sean Healy is hiding to fill next week's quota of misery.
