Anonymous Hackers May Be Targeting Mars Rover.. Bazinga!!!

August 14, 2012

Could this be the cyberworld’s equivalent of one small step for a hacker, one giant leap for hackerkind? A cybersecurity firm claims to have spotted an Internet Relay Chat  (IRC) message seeking help to hack into the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Mars Science Laboratory Mission, Examiner.com reported.

“(A)ssuming that this is in fact an Anonymous member, and not a law enforcement spoof, the very fact that they are even thinking of this sort of hack is somewhat frightening,” it said.
Examiner.com quoted New York-based Flashpoint Partners as saying it spotted the message by user “MarsCuriosity” on the AnonOps IRC channel on Thursday.

Mars Rover Lands Safely, Cal Tech Celebrates

August 6, 2012

PASADENA, California (Reuters) – NASA’s Mars science rover Curiosity landed safely late on Sunday after hurtling through the pink Martian skies at the start of a two-year quest for signs the Red Planet once hosted key ingredients for life. Mission controllers burst into applause and cheered in relief as they received signals confirming that the rover had survived its perilous descent and arrived within its target zone at the bottom of a vast, ancient crater.

The robotic lab sailed through space for more than eight months, covering 352 million miles (566 million km), before piercing Mars’ atmosphere at 13,000 miles per hour — 17 times the speed of sound — before starting its descent.

 Moments after landing, Curiosity beamed back its first three images from the Martian surface, one of them showing a wheel of the vehicle and the rover’s shadow cast on the rocky terrain.

 “I can’t believe this. This is unbelievable,” enthused Allen Chen, the deputy lead of the rover’s entry, descent and landing team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory managed by Cal Tech University  near Los Angeles.

Twelve people were killed and 59 were injured in Aurora, Colo., during a sold-out midnight premier of the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight  Rises” when 24-year-old James Holmes unloaded four weapons’ full of  ammunition into the unsuspecting crowd.

The number of casualties makes the incident the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Holmes, a graduate student at a nearby college with a clean arrest  record, entered the movie auditorium wearing a ballistics helmet,  bullet-proof vest, bullet-proof leggings, gas mask and gloves. He  detonated multiple smoke bombs, and then began firing at viewers in the  sold-out auditorium, police said today.

According to police sources, Holmes told the officers arresting him that he was “The Joker,” referring to the villain in the second installment  of the Batman movie trilogy, “The Dark Knight.” He also warned police  that he had booby-trapped his apartment, leading officers to evacuate  the Aurora apartment building.
