Accomplishments like this give me hope for homo sapiens. Then I watch the news and get thoroughly depressed. Sigh.

Thanks so much. Rather awe-inspiring.

For a reason I'm not quite sure of, those names being given to the various locations annoy me inordinately. I don't know, I suppose they seem to render what is magnificently alien, familiar & mundane ('okay, fellow Earthlings, we'll just take those snotty Martian cliffs and lower them to our level'). In any case I know that 'Hill 391' or 'Declvity XT 1' wouldn't have bothered me a bit.
