With NASA landing the robotic Mars explorer Curiousity on Mars it's time to see what the National Aeronautics and Space Administration can learn from video games. We give the people in Washington DC five tips based on our adventures in video games.
5 - Discover sexy aliens
Of course this list of Mars tips for NASA has to start with Mass Effect. NASA, if you find some good looking aliens, don't keep them a secret.
4 - Don't bring souvenirs
Don't take ancient space relics on board your ship! Dead Space has learned us that if you steal an artifact from an alien planet it will soon turn your entire crew into scary looking killing machines. Look but don't touch seems to be the way to go here NASA!
3 - Mining is dangerous
Mining can be a valuable aspect of research. But be warned. According to the tactical game UFO Afterlight you might be in for an extraterrestrial surprise if you dig too deep!
2 - Stay away from bacteria
Using bacteria from other worlds to work on nanotechnology sounds like a interesting idea. But anyone who played a Red Faction game knows this is extremely dangerous. Before you know it you've caused a new plague resulting in a civil war. Be careful with that stuff NASA.
1 - Don't experiment with portals
Don't experiment with teleports - Everybody who played Doom in the 90s knows you shouldn't mess with teleportation. Because if things go wrong you might open up a portal to hell and unleash demons in our dimension.
