That's the continuity guy, at the derelict hanger on the deserted airfield, out of a job.

Well Mars has a active atmosphere high winds dust storms ect the surface is not static like the Moon where a small rock will remain exactly where it is for millions if not billions of years,things change.

Didn't I tell you that Drapes was a seafaring man and has travelled the World (and, it seems, the Universe as well)?

Might have just been given a parking ticket by a local policeman.

This is the oldest trick in the book. The Martians placed the rock there, under cover of Martian darkness. It has a piece of fishing line attached. When the Rover goes to pick it up, the hidden Martians will whip it away, and roll around, laughing hysterically.
NASA really needs to set up the Rover to listen for giggling Martians in the background noise. :)

In the absence of a stick or a ball, that was the best Rover could find. He's just waiting for someone to throw it now.

"This is the oldest trick in the book. The Martians placed the rock there, under cover of Martian darkness."

They didn't need to do it in darkness, wasn't Rover asleep ?

If rover was asleep he wasn't very good at watching out for errant Martians was he.
