Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The description of the orbiter and lander is pretty good.

The astronauts make the right decision and report their find of a dead cosmonaut to NASA.

Con: I refuse to believe that any NASA astronauts, now or ever, would for one second consider withholding data they’d collected. Nor would they rush the rover away; they calmly sit there methodically relaying their observations back to Earth as they made them.
