Enroute to Adelaide we felt so priviliged for having the opportunity to see what the Mars’ surface must look like. Why spend so much money to send “Path Finder” on the red planet? Just take a Jeep and make soundings here! Thanks to the Consul of Italy in Adelaide, Roberto Colaminè, for his kind hospitality.
